The music industry's most loved/most hated (depending on who you ask) week of the year, SXSW, is here once again! We'll have three staffers down there this year (Eda, Ryan and I) seeing as many bands, parties and free taco-filled events as possible. Daily updates from the three of us each morning will be posted on the home page, and we will also be updating the AP.net live show twitter (@apnetatshow). You can also follow each of us individually on twitter to see what bands and parties we're at at any given moment (@paultao, @alueda, @ryangardnerc). If you're down in Austin for the madness, feel free to say hi to any of us that you run into on the streets! Most of us get in tomorrow night or Wednesday morning so our first daily updates will likely start coming in Thursday morning.
March 16th come to 2211 Webberville Rd (it's a bar). 9PM, Tiny Moving Parts, My Iron Lung, Frameworks, my band Looking For Alaska, and more! It's gonna be fuuuuun. https://www.facebook.com/events/325285920906443/?ref=ts&fref=ts
