great write ups, I always like hearing about sxsw, it definitely helps put me on to some new music. BUT, Kayceman, "Stax, Motown and Muscle Shoals got nothin' on Ms. Jones and her Dap-Kings." LETS BE SERIOUS NOW. I love Sharon, love the Dap-Kings, shoot, I love everything I've heard from the Daptone label, but come on, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Carla Thomas, Arthur Conley, the Funk Brothers, David Ruffin, Booker T. and the MG's, Porter and Hayes, Holland/Dozier/Holland, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, so on, so forth, have NOTHING on Sharon and the Dap Kings? That was an enormous overstatement. But yeah, they are an incredible band, and I can't wait for the new album.

This time of year my head feels like it may explode from all the music! Love the coverage kayce and hagerman. Thank-you booth for running yourselves ragged to cover this extensive showcase.

I've been glued to NPR and XPN listening to all the coverage also. I am excited for Danny Barnes to make his way into Philly and it's good to hear about the Spoon domination on their home turf - that new album has punch. I'm bumbed that that Broken Bells set let you down. Dug what I heard from the surfer Blood show, the Fanfarlo show, and the Title tracks show.
