Here’s a piece I did for WiretapMusic.com on the Bay Area bands at SXSW 2008!
“It is time once again, my friends, to journey to the vast flatlands of Texas. It is time to voyage to that place where music-obsessives gather each year to feast on tasty musical offerings from far and wide. Yes, we’re talking about South by Southwest 2008 (SXSW 08), and yes, it’s almost here!
We here at Wiretap Music are deeply excited by this year’s line-up and we’re impressed by the incredible amount of reprezentin’ shown by the Bay Area music scene. At last count, there were 73 Bay-Area bands confirmed at the festival – w00t!
Because we know navigating the SXSW landscape can be an eye-crossing task, we wanted to cull the list a bit for you, our beloved readers. Listed below are our Top Ten Picks, a few more random picks, and a full list of Bay Area bands playing SXSW 08.”
