South by Southwest in six words or less


We’re still recovering from last week’s SXSW festivities. Too much beer, too much sun, too much beer in the sun. The one thing we didn’t get too much of was all the music happening in Austin. But with thousands of bands performing over four days at hundreds of clubs, there were only so many places we could be at one time. Thankfully, some guy from The Morning News listened to more than 750 bands that played the music fest and wrote six-word reviews on all of them. We’re still regretting we didn’t make it to Vampire Weekend’s Friday-night showcase – we were at the Merge Records showcase or, more accurately, we were stalking Zooey Deschanel – but thanks to The Morning News recap, we’re so glad we skipped the Paul White Quintet’s concert: “My old jazz teacher’d love this.” -- Michael Gallucci
