Last year, I spent the majority of my time at the British Music Embassy at Latitude 30. It was so long ago now, I don't really remember if it was more because it was a safe place for me because I knew exactly where it was on San Jacinto Boulevard, or if it was the line-ups that drew me there. In any event, at SXSW 2013 I was mildly disappointed by the programme being presented over the week, with a lot of bands that I just didn't care for. Traditionally, Tuesday [...]

SXSW 2013: Pre-Festival Shenanigans with the Dig at Clive Bar and the NI@SXSW showcase at Latitude 30 – 10th and 11th March 2013
You may think it's mental showing up a full 2 days before the madness known as SXSW officially begins on a Tuesday, but it was part of my concerted effort to ease myself gently into the maelstrom. That's the benefit of having been through the craziness at least once before; not only do you not get lost every 5 minutes in Austin, you also have the foresight to take it easy as you can.

Snowball in a nutshell! (Photo Credit: David Rodman ) Held last weekend in Winter Park, CO, the third installment of the Snowball Music Festival can only be described as a raging success – heavy emphasis on the “rage.” Like 2011 and 2012 before it, Snowball 2013 remained heavy on the EDM when putting together its lineup. This year boasted 51 artists in 3 days, featuring local, national, and international names - including some of the biggest names in the electronic music world: Pretty Lights , STS9 , Big Gigantic , Porter [...]

Another edition of Canadian Musicfest (the music showcase component of Canadian Music Week ) quietly kicked off yesterday evening but it gets into full gear tonight. I've gone through the list of artists, skimming bios, listening to audio, checking out videos, what-have-you, and have cobbled together a long list of artists that I found interesting, both from abroad, and from our own fair country / city. On a side note, I must mention that the whole process of 'researching' who I might be interested in seeing is an entirely un-fun experience - it's long, boring, and tiring [...]

No surprises, but it's summer in Austin already. And I'm totally fine with that, because today's got some great music lined up - both indoor and out.
