Weekly Roundup | SXSW & Langerado Leftovers

by -

I’m back from SXSW 2007 after a fantastic week at both the Interactive and Music conferences, even if my feet and my liver are slightly mad at me after spending so much time down on 6th Street…

We’ve got a bunch of stuff still planned for posting from the festival, and Marc’s got a few updates on Langerado coming — so stay tuned for both.

In the meantime, catch up on the past week on Live Music Blog and hope everyone has a killer week.

  • Live from SXSW 2007: Music Festival Begins!
    The whole music world has descended on Austin for SXSW 2007, and I can say that as a first time visitor, I’m wholly impressed with the way this entire town completely shuts down for normal business and opens itself up to rock, sing, folk, funk, etc — not to mention party their asses off.

Full roundup after the jump…
