In with a whimper and out with a bang: SXSW Day 3

I think there's a saying that goes like "in with a bang, out with a whimper" or something like that. Drake probably said it or something. Anyway, today was that, but opposite. I woke up embarrassingly hungover and didn't even leave my hotel until 1:00 p.m. And on St. Paddy's Day no less! C'mon...

SXSW: Go to Austin if you're looking for a drummer for your band

Breakfast tacos. Always a good idea Breakfast beers. Never a good idea SXSW Day 1 Recap First band of the day was Lo Moon.

White Reaper killed SXSW. You should know who they are

I had a great time at SXSW, but the best 50 minutes of the entire week were spent in a tiny bar watching the band White Reaper melt all the faces. The thing about being a radio guy at a festival like this is that you get dragged all over Austin by record labels to check out bands. Don’t get me...
