I Could Dance With You Till The Cows Come Home

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

SXSW has announced this year’s comedy line-up for the fun in March. The full repertoire of performers can be found on the website, with a mix of stand up shows, full shows, recordings, and live tapings.

Have aloof through the list at the SXSW website, with a lot of new and upcoming names (just like SXSW Music) but with the occasional big hitter in the mix (including Beth Stelling, W Kamau Bell, Glen Wool, and Katie Dippold all catching my eye.

As well as the usual gigs and podcast recordings we’ve seen in previous years, the SXSW team are recurring two love comedy specials  for subsequent broadcast. These will both take place at The North Door on Sunday March 15th.

With just over three weeks to go until SXSW kicks off once more, it’s time for the regular SXSW Baby! podcast to start up again. This year we’re going to build up to SXSW through a series of ‘Understanding SXSW’ podcasts. Today’s introductory podcast will explain it all (as well as introduce you to ‘Five Things That You Need To Pack In Your SXSW Bag‘), and as your trip to Austin gets closer we’ll have a ‘beginner’s level’ podcast, followed by ‘intermediate’ and then ‘expert’ tips and advice from the SXSW Baby! team.

No iTunes Festival for 2015

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Well, the talk of the town from last year’s SXSW Music isn’t coming back. We’ve a bit of a love/hate relationship with the  iTunes Festival that rolled into Austin last year. Eric loved the organisation, vibe, and ticket allocation of Cupertino’s fest promotional vehicle. On the other hand I didn’t like the way it sucked the mainstream media’s attention away from the indie artists and smaller stars that make up SXSW.

Lets see how we get on without a great big Apple invasion this year, and let’s get the focus back on the new music.
