First night of SXSW Music
Even Tuesday night, which is much milder than the weekend posted a lot of energy. Whether or not you have an official pass or badge, stroll down 6th street for the energy. Many venues will allow you in with a cash cover payment. If you cam deal with the frustration of watching badges and banded SXSWers enter with priority ahead of you and you don’t want to shell out $170 for the wristband, than you might try that.
I saw two Banda last night: Apache Relay from Nashville, TN which ROCKED it and Quiet Company from Austin, TX. Most of the time I learn about new music fro
KCRW Djs, so it was cool to see excelled bands without their assistance.
