SXSW 2009

The annual SXSW music fest has started in Austin. One of of these years, Mighty Toy Cannon will be so renowned across the blogoverse that I'll get free tickets and airfare to attend. Yeah, right.

For now, I'm stuck listening to podcasts and streaming concerts and reading blog reports courtesy of the estimable Bob Boilen and colleagues at NPR and "All Songs Considered." Their SXSW coverage is quite remarkable and fun.

NPR is also offering a free sampler download featuring ten bands, including Portland's own Blitzen Trapper and Decemberists.
