SXSW Debrief

by Dave in , ,


As most readers know, last week I attended the South by Southwest conference for the first time. I caught the last bits of the film festival, and then was there for both Interactive and Music. I reported on this over at The Mac Observer and iPodObserver.com throughout the week, as follows:

The music festival really blew me away, and in basically 4 days I saw more than 24 acts, including:

  • American Bang
  • Béla Fleck
  • Ben Harper
  • Billy Bragg
  • Blue Cheer
  • Bowling for Soup
  • Brendan James
  • Dead Confederate
  • Foreign Born
  • Jonathan Rice
  • Kate Nash
  • Kevin Gordon
  • Papercranes
  • R.E.M.
  • RX Bandits
  • Serj Tankian
  • The Presidents of the United States of America
  • The Redwalls
  • The Supersuckers
  • The Vines
  • Tom Morello
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Van Morrison
  • Wheatus

Was a great week, and is also great to be back home!
