Despite my SXSW preview blogs being horrifically under-read, and misunderstood as boastful bragging pieces about what others can’t experience instead of creative ways to promote artists I may otherwise not be able to talk about, and despite Saving Country Music being eaten by Facebook, ripped in half by XXX, and the last vestiges of readers descending into pointless polarized rants about Hank III and Jamey Johnson that scare any thoughts of new readers away, I sally forth.
Stalkers, I present to you the Holy Grail of my upcoming SXSW movements: my master schedule. It is subject to change. Please if your down in Austin and happen to see I will be attending a show that you will also, don’t approach me, I’m not in the mood. And I’m packing.
