    I'm so jealous of you Austinites... Every damn year, I say I'm going to make SXSW, but life gets in the way. Have fun at The Birds of Avalon show in May. They are really fun live.

    You should plan a trip to Austin during SXSW once in your life. It's overwhelmingly fun. Plan WELL in advance and you can even get a hotel downtown, which is the holy grail of places to crash after 14 hours of self abuse.
