So here we are again. I, Andrew Casillas, will be your guide for this year's SXSW music festival from Austin, Texas, that bastion of crap Tex-Mex and cilantro lime salsa (but the pork belly is always reliable). This year I'll be joined by fellow CFer Giovanni Guillén, whose job is to make me feel old at all times. Especially when someone brings up the Clinton Administration.
As always, we'll post interviews, showcase reviews, and random crap throughout the week. This year's lineup is absolutely STACKED, with performances by Bam Bam, Natalia Lafourcade, Andrea Balency, Ximena Sariñana, Alex Anwandter, and Javiera Mena. And that's without taking into account the possibility that one of us may troll the Juanes show at the W Hotel!
NOTE: The person in the picture is Leslie Cochran, the prominent homeless cross-dresser who died last week. Vaya con Dios, dude.
SECOND NOTE: I saw Machete on TV this past weekend, which was filmed in Austin. That movie was so ridiculous yet...kinda awesome. So expect many random nods regarding that movie.
