SXSW (that’s South by Southwest) is going on. SXSW is a huge media festival, for lack of a better term. It’s tons of indie bands, movie makers, and media types (a growing number of which are Web media types) gathering in Austin to be… well.. corporately sponsored.
But, they do draw an incredible amount of very cool, very unknown (to a national audience) entertainers. And, as a bonus, they release all that music for free.
You can now get the torrents for the music here. Last year there was about a months worth of music and I kept a great deal of it. I hope this year is even better.
