SXSW Through The Eyes (And Ears) Of Others

This year’s South By Southwest is of course going on right now in Austin. I’m not there, but a lot of great music sites are down south covering said event.

Here’s a quick rundown of what they’re up to.

Rock Insider
Jax from Rock Insider writes from the road to Austin, where she reports that “Ryan from Division Day is so punk rock he sleeps with his guitar in the back of the van.” And more.

Little Radio
Will be broadcasting live from Austin with performances by Tokyo Police Club, The Black Angels, and the like. And they’ll also be posting photos and video interviews, to boot.

Rough Mix
The folks at Rough Mix – which include Aquarium Drunkard – are posting reviews of live sets w/ MP3s from the event.

Gorilla Vs. Bear
Yeah, he’s pretty much soaking in it. Lots of pics.

Brooklyn Vegan
Has an article on bands from Brooklyn playing the show and mo'.

Pitchfork
They have a feature story on the event right here.

Anyone else see any site that has good coverage of the event?
