First of all, it’s more madness this time around than I remembered. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older and lamer and my half-Irish liver can’t quite swing St. Patrick’s Day with as much gusto as it once did. Or maybe it’s because Molly and I, in an effort to bring recommendations, recap, and (SXSW) reality to those of you who couldn’t make it this year are trying to see as many bands as humanly possible each 24 hour period.

All I can say is that my Excel spreadsheet is failing me miserably, my shutter finger is bruised, and I’m having the time of my life. Take this as an open invitation to come join me next year. You’ll not regret it (as long as you bring ear plugs, sunscreen, and comfortable shoes), I promise.
