While I am sitting on a very cramped flight from NYC to Austin, TX, the only thing keeping me sane while stuck in the middle seat is my collection of podcasts that I have needed to catch up on. The folks at SXSW have also joined the podcast revolution, now featuring different downloads for the different festivals going on. You may not realize this, but SXSW is not only a music festival, as they also have festivals for film and interactive industries.
So while you sort through the gigantic list of bands you are going to attempt to catch this coming week, go ahead and download a few podcasts from the official SXSW website. If anything, It will help drown out the noise from the guy sitting next to you with a severe sinus problem. You can thank me later!
Keep checking back, as the Tripwire crew will be reporting from Austin all week. Now somebody go grab me a Red Stripe and lets get this festival started!
