SXSW Day 8

Friday March 14

2pm, Carbon/Silicon panel interview in convention center. Carbon/Silicon are Mick Jones (the Clash) and Tony James.

3:30pm, Movie: "They Killed Sister Dorothy" -- because it had won both the audience award and the panel awards for Best Documentary of the festival.

5:30, walked the trade show floor (vendors are different for the music trade show than for the film/interactive trade show, but most booths were closing up).

6pm, cappuccino at the Hyatt, chatted with a musician from Louisiana who gave us his upcoming CD. Then went to PF Chang's for dinner.

8pm The BoDeans free general admission show at Auditorium Shores. They had a convenient bleacher area set up to the side for badges, so we took advantage of that. They also had free Fuse smoothie drinks.

10pm X, with their complete original lineup (John, Exene, Billy, and DJ), at the Bat Bar

11pm Blue Rodeo and Friends. "Friends" included The Sadies, Rhett Miller from the Old 97's, some woman named "Oh Susanne" (?) and some other Canadian duo that I don't remember. The set was double-length probably because of the various guest performers. It seemed like most of the crowd (probably 250-300 people) was Canadian.

Seems like I'm hearing way more British accents this year than in previous years.
