Some Early SXSW Planning

If you're headed to SXSW next month, you may want to think about checking out Free Yr Radio's great SXSW Planner. They're keeping a list of all of the official and un-official SXSW shows, and give you the ability to build and itinerary and even map out every show you want to go to. Pretty freakin' cool. (Thanks to Done Waiting for the heads up!)

Some of the more interesting shows that they have listed, which are all new to me (except REM, where the times are new to me), include:

WHY IS THE AUSSIE PARTY ON SUNDAY AFTER EVERYONE HAS LEFT?!?!!?!? You Am I had better be playing another show during SXSW. And the Hoodoos too, dammit.

That Aussie BBQ listing is a mistake. Last year it was on Friday the 16th and featured YAI and Hoodoo Gurus. This year it is on Friday the 14th and will feature The Panics, Paul Kelly, The Stems, Something With Numbers, Whitley, and Ash Grunwald.

Thanks for the head's up, Sal.. It seemed weird that the Hoodoos would come 2 years in row, but I didn't really think about it.
