SXSW 2009 - Every Band We Saw



[Photo of Jane's Addiction by James Trevenen]

Whew! What a week it was. Sure, we might not have seen as many bands as we did during CMJ, but cut us some slack, we were like 1500 miles away from our office. Besides, at CMJ we didn't see bands the scope of Devo, Kanye West, Crystal Method, Echo and the Bunnymen... well, you get the idea. Keep in mind, this doesn't include some of the bands we will have for you next week in video interviews, nor the many bands we saw when our cameras died or malfunctioned. Still, our tans don't nearly reflect the amount of time we spent in the Texas sun soaking up the best of SxSW.
