Austin’s South by Southwest is rapidly approaching (Mar. 12th-21st). I am making a vow to not do what I did last year, which was not go to a single event and sit in the corner and pout and mumble about how much I hate a festival that I’ve never even gone to.
There was really no call for it.
I was just bitter that I had to work the entire week and it would take me three times as long to drive anywhere. GO BACK TO L.A!
This year I will see shows if it kills me (fast forward to me sitting home alone on the couch with a tub of peanut butter).
Here is a list of some of the music acts this year. I’m still learning the list myself so there will be more to come.
