SXSW REPORT
2003 Music + Media Conference
March 12-16 – Austin, Texas
B-SIDE

3/12/03 : I FLY SXSW

Hope springs eternal on this rainy Austin, TX afternoon. Already,
we’ve met several indie artists and we haven’t even hit tonight’s showcases, yet.

Culture springs eternal here, too, and we’re glad of it.

SXSW is just ramping up, as far as music goes, today. the tradeshow officially begins tomorrow. We’re doing our best to break the ice (take note, yon artist/indie music fan)…but opportunities like this are onCe-in-a-lifetime deals, so we’re making the best of it.

For those of you who are here, or on the way, we’re offering free A&R CDs in each SXSW 2003 big bag, so be on the lookout and let us know what you think of some of our cream of the crop artists.

We just sat in on a conference re: touring and booking, and we’ve got some good pointers we’ll share with you later on in the week. Today, thus far, is friendly and low-key.

There are tons of indie bands, or band members that have come here just to learn more about the industry and to promote, not even to showcase. It’s quite inspiring.

Rumor has it that Snoop Dogg’s staying at the Four Seasons this week!

We’re gonna see if we can crash the party and litter his room with MP3.com stickers!

As we all know, there’s a big indie/college rock contingent here. We know Miami’s enjoying an electronica conference this week, so one wonders where Hip Hop and R&B heads are going….hm….?

Renee Woodward

Here are a couple of the brave, self-promoting indie kids we’ve met thus far: Renee Woodward and B-Side (bsidefolkunion.com).

More later! We’re off to a PR conference, and we’ll scoop you for sure!
