SXSW 2009 Recap

SXSW 2009 Recap

South-by-Southwest 2009 was a giant conglomeration of people & music, and QRO was there. From checking out new bands to hitting up favorites multiple times, from going noon-to-last-call to barely making it out, from sticking to 6th Street to heading farther afield, there was way too much seen at SXSW 2009.

Day 4 Everyone was worn down by Day Four, so it was off to see how favorites were holding up.
Recap >
Day 3 Day Three of SXSW unfortunately saw a major split in our coverage, as one of us stayed steady, and the other saw decidedly less.
Recap >
Day 2 After hitting South by Southwest hard on Day One, did the same on Day Two, only more so.
Recap >
Day 1 Took it all in on Day One of South by Southwest, with fourteen hours of music.
