If youre not already at SXSW and Im guessing youre not Seattles listener supported radio KEXP is broadcasting live from SXSW for the next two days. Check out the full schedule here, but go ahead and mark your calendars for todays 3 p.m. Billy Bragg performance and Fridays 2 p.m. Drive By Truckers show.
Speaking of Chattanooga regulars DBT, A Blessing and a Curse appeared on my desk earlier this week. Ill have a full review up closer to its April 18 release date, but know this: Im giddy like a school girl about this album. Its the best album Ive heard all year. Ive swapped a few e-mail with the New West PR department and theyre all down in Austin pushing the album, so keep your eyes peeled: This could blow up.
Show tonight: Mary Guathier at Rhythm & Brews. That is, if you can pull yourselves away from the basketball. Me? Im a little nervous.
