I'm off for a much-needed (if not deserved) vacation, pals. In an hour or so I'm making my way to Hopkins to catch a flight to DFW, where I shall rendezvous with my fellow band member/film maker/partner in crime and head down to ... brace yourself ... South By Southwest.

I thought about blogging during this thing, but that'll just be a hassle and will also make me do more real work while I'm down there than I'm willing to do (though I should be doing it). But I'll try to keep notes of some sort and fill you all in (i.e., talk mad shit) about what I see and do while there. Right now, I'm just hoping we make it to town in time to catch this great Kill Rock Stars party this afternoon that my friend Jen told me about last night. Other than that, I'm looking forward to catching sets by Daniel Johnston, Dinosaur Jr, Women, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Sholi, Vetiver, Black Joe Louis, King Khan, Thao Nguyen, Abe Vigoda, Akron/Family, Wavves, and many many more.

Plus there will be actually edible Mexican food and bbq to eat.

Take care of the place while I'm gone, Cleveland - I'll see you next week.


PS - For those of you still here this week, check out the Friday night Beachland show. Sounds like it has a lot of energy building.

Having all these people going to SXSW is kind of like watching some MTV reality show about people with lifestyles you'll never have, and they're all cool and clean and perfect.

So it's a good thing you're not blogging during it, because I might forget that you're dirty.

Also, cause it would be lame.

I'm here in DFW kicking myself that I can't make it down there for sxsw. I would definitely catch dinosaur jr, and the pains of being pure at heart, as well as the parlotones, and ian moore. Blog about how amazing it was when you get back, please sir.
