South by Southwest’s official music programs run Wednesday through Sunday, and for a change my day one was actually day one this year. Most people—the ones in their right minds—spend only three days at Austin’s most famous music festival/ebbless glut of shmoozing and puke smell, and they usually make Thursday the first. I’m leaving early, though, so starting early seems reasonable. Unlike most people attending SXSW, I am five months pregnant and walk slow and nap much, so I am seeing only maybe six bands a day, not 27 (as writer Christopher Weingarten bragged he’d done on Twitter this AM).
