SXSW ’09 Band Photos are up!

March 24th, 2009 | Comments Off | Posted in Music, Photos

I’ve posted all my favorite SXSW artist shots from this year on Flickr. I selected about 130 out of about 6000.  I think I did OK; not as good as I’d hoped.  I think I need to be more pushy in the front row, but without a camera tag, I feel guilty squeezing in there.  I also had to leave my camera at home for most showcases (aka nighttime shows) on the worry that the larger venues wouldn’t let me in with an untagged camera.

I also have some really great shots of friends, food, interesting people, etc, that I will sort through and post shortly.  I wanted to get the artist shots up ASAP.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites from the week, in case you don’t want to look through them all, followed by the full slideshow.

SXSW ’09 Band Tally

March 23rd, 2009 | Comments Off | Posted in Music

Got back late last night, exhausted (although suprisingly chipper) and glad to be back.  Had a blast; met some fine folks, drank some cold beverages, ate some delish Tex-Mex, and (of course) saw some great shows. Total count this year is 56 bands and one comedian, not inlcuding five repeat viewings. That’s a tie with last year; I tried to hit 60 but wasn’t able to pull it off.

I’ve got over 6000 photos to sort through, and I’ll get those up soon.  I’m also planning on doing a second annual SXSW awards (’08 awards are here and here) within the next few days, but in the meantime here’s my list for SXSW ’09:
