By having my own 4 day and 4 night showcase at SXSW - I really dont get to see much else except the bands that play my venue (not that I mind, all the bands that play are awesome). One band I am bummed I did not get to see this year is London outfit 2:54.
They just finished a tour with The Big Pink in the UK before SXSW. and of course are now in the states playing the west coast - last night in Los Angeles and Thursday night in San Francisco.....which I have to miss because I just cant seem to get over this nasty SXSW sickness I picked up while in Austin!
I hear great things about thier live show....next time!
