My favorite weekend of the year has come and gone again. A couple of weeks after the over-sized crowds, egos, and marketing campaigns of SXSW comes a music festival in the hill country outside Austin that’s just about the music. With only 15,000 attendees, and a couple of stages, you can see at least a […]
How effective are restaurant recommendation algorithms? The late journalist David Carr once asked at SXSW, "What the fuck is an algorithm? What does one feed it? How do you take care of it?" At its most simple, an algorithm is a step-by-step process that solves a problem, and online, algorithms rule everything. Show More Summary
I sort of stumbled across Doug Burr right before SXSW. Hailing from Dallas, Burr only played one or two sets down in Austin. Luckily for me, one of those fit perfectly in my schedule. And while I typically like to shy away from 6th on the weekend nights, Burr was playing in one of the [...]

West Virginia’s Rozwell Kid were among the acts performing at Stereogum’s very own SXSW showcase last month. In their new video for the melodic guitar churn “Kangaroo Pocket,” the lead track from their recent album Too Shabby, the four-piece plays through their latest single totally headless. It’s a lighthearted clip, but the cartoonish gore plays […]

A few years back during SXSW, we made our way over to The San Jose of their South By San Jose blowout. The main draws for us were J. Roddy and Alabama Shakes. It was a beautiful day, beers were going down like water and troubling was brewing. The lineup was as follows – J. [...]
Meerkat was a breakout success at SXSW, and even after Twitter shut down API access, the livestreaming app still managed to dominate the conversation in the media. That is, until Twitter announced Periscope, which has since become the media darling. Show More Summary
Watching Sheer Mag play a bridge show in Austin was one of the best experiences that I had at this year’s SXSW. I’d seen the Philly-based band play more conventional venues, including New York’s Bowery Ballroom, but somehow the slipshod presentation of this particular set seemed most appropriate. With no bar or noisy side conversations […]
The Tribeca Film Festival hasn’t fully embraced episodic television as a cornerstone of their programming just yet — at least, not compared to other fests, like SXSW. But a few shows made their way into the program this year, and one...Show More Summary
When Lexar introduced the Workflow Tower last year, I took it to SXSW for a real world review. Basically you have a 4 slot unit, where you can interchange the card reading modules, depending on your media, and have them all download concurrently to a folder, or consecutively to Lightroom. This was a dream come […]
At SXSW, where apps such as Meerkat sparked industry buzz, The Ipsos Girls' Lounge brought female founders together to help guide new tech startups. With only seven percent of women currently receiving startup funds, we dug into the bias that may be holding female entrepreneurs back and shared insight to help them win the pitch. Show More Summary

Spring has arrived, at last, in New York – time to rock. This long blitz is inspired by an extended crush of listening, writing and shows here over winter's last few weeks, with a desperately-needed break at SXSW in Austin, Texas which included live shots of the Richmond, Virginia band...
