it's not a festival. it's a huge music industry showcase/ass kissing debacle. and it swoops in and murders downtown austin for a week, drains it of its resources, drains people of their bank account because what are normally reasonably priced wares are now thousands of dollars and it alienates people who actually live in austin by barring them entrance to their favorite bars and restaurants.

but fuck it, i got a free badge, gotta head out my ride is here.

So Scott or Jimv what are you enjoying most?

So far I've been digging hearing–

Guadalupe Plata are a duo are a cross of the Black keys and Mofro – these two youngsters from Spain have soul and they rule the backwater swamp blues – def check out Pedro de Dios Barcelo and Carlos Jimena - These guys are insanely awesome!

Ages and Ages - have a similar feel to the fluffy hand claps of Edward Sharpe - worth a listen here - http://www.myspace.com/agesandages

The Joy Formidable - and their singer Ritzy Bryan is rock and roll reminds me of an English Heartless Bastards with less blues more pop rock -

Yellow Ostrich - Alex Schaaf has me intrigued just listen to whale and see if it reminds you of childhood something fun going on in the vocals-
