SXSW underway

It seems like a lot of music events are integrating science and technology and becoming everything events. South by Southwest, or SXSW, held in Austin, TX, for the past few years is no exception. It is taking place this week from the 12th – 21st. What started out as a music festival has now become a fully integrated event that takes over the entire city of Austin, TX, for more than a week.

If you’re in anywhere within driving distance of the area, check out their music, film, and interactive events.

Here’s a photo gallery of events from this weekend courtesy of Wired.

NPR is also in looooove with SXSW. Hear the news story about how geeked out SXSW is this year, and some of the NPR music critics’ responses to SXSW bands (hint: they like them a lot).
