Austin's Lex Land did the double last night. At the same time as she was performing live at The Sessions' Living Room Live bash at the W Hotel, she was also being broadcast on TV, as a contestant on NBC's The Voice. She is now a part of Team Blake Shelton, whatever that means, but it's probably good.
South by Southwest - SXSW - is 3 weeks away (sooner if one counts the Interactive and Film programs). As usual for the Music festival, the official side of it will be big, and the unofficial side will be huge. This year, the major buzz will be for Bruce Springsteen, who is presenting the conference keynote. Everyone expects him to also play a show of some kind, maybe with his band to push the upcoming album, or perhaps with his friend and local royalty Alejandro Escovedo. No one knows what or where right now. And when they do, it will be a mob scene.
Here are some websites to help you find out what's going on. Where there are RSVP links, be sure to use them, and also remember to take ID with you.
SXSW Official Music Showcases - The 'grid' of official showcases. Many of these are open to the paying public, though badges and wristbands get priority, and there may well be a line for plebs.
