SXSW: It begins

Tomorrow is the official start of the music portion of South by Southwest, which means that it's time for me to pack my bags, hop a plane to Austin, and prepare to be completely bombarded by music for the next five days straight. Sounds rough, right? 

Follow Gimme Noise this week as we head down to Austin, Texas to cover the music festival. I will be posting show reviews and notes, and Stacy Schwartz will be sharing her photography. Also, tune into Mischke Wednesday through Friday this week to hear live updates from SXSW.
