NXNW

It is freezing outside today for the final day of SXSW. Not sure that the outdoor showcase I wanted to see is going to be worth the case of pneumonia that comes along with it. Okay, so maybe that's a bit dramatic, but what it won't be pleasant either way.

So much music the last few days and so little time to talk about it.

High points so far:

Peter Wolf Crier - had never heard of them, but loved their set
Ramble Creek Day Party - didn't make the entire show for various reasons, but this was by far the best setting and best lineup of the festival
Califone
Pretentious idiots with badges (not a band - more on this later)
Dawes acoustic set
Billy Joe Shaver

Also, I think we got the ultimate Wu-Tang Clan experience, because we waited in line on Wednesday to see the GZA, only to find out when we got to the front of the line that he was a no-show.

I'll do another re-cap at some point soon, although I'm sure I'll forget most of it between now and then.

Thanks again for coming out to the Ramble Creek show. It was a pleasure meeting y'all - however briefly! Safe travels to y'all!
