The South by Southwest Music and Media Conference (SXSW) happens once a year, and it attracts thousands. People fly out from around the country to check out concerts by little known bands, that for SXSW standards, are going to be that year's up and comers. The attendees will be able to say they saw them first when their friends are getting a first listen on the radio.
It combines, live music, behind the scenes of film making and everything that is new in media & technology. Sounds like a Goobers paradise :)
If you are close to Austin TX, check it out March 13-22.
There will be over 1,800 musical performances on 80 of Austin's stages. EPIC.
I have to mention that Diggnation will be having a live show on March 14th at Stubb's, all ages. Go get your drink on with the Digg boys!
For more info on SXSW check out the site, the schedule is insane, i think you will def. find something worth checking out.
[Hey Goobers, I think we need to check this out next year *hint*hint* ;) ]
