Trekking out to Austin next week for SXSW to play live as part of Loose Shus, and DJ as Chautauqua. No idea what to expect but I’ve heard that its a total clusterfuck of artists, egos, cellphones, queues, ropes, wristbands, business cards, corporate sponsors, tweets, fandom, and drug use.

Kjell B PerssonKnow what the worst thing about not going to SXSW this Spring was? Not missing SXSW, but not having my previously annual late-Winter vacation. In fact, save for a weekend jaunt to New York last November, the last time I got out of the 416 was Labour Day – that’s well over eight [...]
