SXSW Entry #10 – Adios Austin! (Hello Austin!)

Well my good looking readers, that’s it for my coverage of SXSW 2009. I want to thank Carlos and Jean-Stephane for allowing me to take over this site for the past few days (Writer’s Note: Hey y’all – you’re WELCOME for the vacation by the way :p). I also want to thank all the artists, their bands, and their managers who treated me with the utmost respect all in the name of a blog.

As for me, I’m going to stay behind in Austin because I’ve got no place else to go (also, all of my stuff is here). I’ll try to pop in with a review, or witty piece every now and then, and I hope that you’ll welcome me with open arms as you have during the past week.

And as a public service to you all, here are some bands that I saw this week who you are to avoid at ALL costs: Razorlight (booorrrring), Nite Jewel (pompous), Crystal Stilts (who the hell wants to see Jim Morrison fronting Joy Division??), Wavves (white noise overdose), Asher Roth (just plain suck-itude).

Anyway, thanks for everything, I bought you an ice cream sandwich, but as you can see, I already ate it—so I owe you one. If you see me on the street, come say “Hi,” and we’ll walk to the taqueria and we’ll split a fresas con crema. Hasta luego!


  1. i saw nite jewel opening for times new viking and deerhunter at el paso texas and it was pretty cool really.

  2. creo que de cualquier manera habría preferido ver otras cosas a volver a verlas.

  3. Andrew, thanks for this! I'll see you next year @ Austin.
