Reviews: SXSW Part 1 (Tuesday 3/16 and Wednesday 3/17)

Because I was working during SXSW, I didn’t make it to quite as many showcases as I would have liked.  Still, I saw quite a few bands and attended a bunch of parties during the week and I thought the easiest way to handle reviewing everything would be in time order. I’ll be dividing the [Continue]
