SXSW 2007

Oh, to be in Austin, Texas in a month's time. For music fans Austin is a great place to visit all year round. However South X SouthWest, running March 14-18 is perhaps the highlight of the musical year. The trouble is deciding which venue to attend each night. The schedule has just been released and if you have a spare couple of hours you can peruse it here.
So, so many great bands to see, but here are few nights I would love to attend-

14th March, Emo's- Beirut, The Mountain Goats, Blonde Redhead or
Antone's-The Rosebuds, The Broken West, Oakley Hall

15th March, Buffalo Billiards-Bob Mould, Rocky Votolato, Jesse Sykes, Menomena or
La Zona Rosa-What Made Milwaukee Famous, Cold War Kids, Architecture in Helsinki or
Mohawk-Evangelicals, Catfish Haven, Ladyhawk or
Mohawk Patio-Bishop Allen, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, The Besnard Lakes, Okkervil River or
Soho Lounge-Deerhunter, Do Make Say Think or
Stubb's-Bloc Party, The Dears

16th March, Stubb's-Andrew Bird, Badly Drawn Boy, The Good, The Bad & The Queen or
Habana Calle 6-Amy Millan, Apostle of Hustle or
Maggie Mae's-Dirty on Purpose, Page France, Chin Up Chin Up

17th March, Habana Calle 6- +/-, Frog Eyes or
Stubb's, Kings of Leon, Spoon

I haven't even mentioned some reasonably talented artists like Annuals, The Black Angels, BOAT, Calla, Cloud Cult, Cursive, Micah P. Hinson, Immaculate Machine, Lucero, Maps & Atlases, Maritime, Midlake, Mogwai, Oh No! Oh My!, Oxford Collapse, Rjd2, Sloan, Tokyo Police Club, Chad VanGaalen, Voxtrot that are playing in various other venues.
