SXSW '09 Preview

So I promised you guys a preview of this years SXSW festival in Austin, TX and here it is. To be totally honest it isn't very good. Trying to go through a list of all of the musical acts playing at this years SXSW festival is just completely overwhelming. Any attempt to try go through a list that big while still working a full time job would have killed me. But a promise is a promise, dammit. So, this will not be nearly as in depth as I would have liked but at least you get some mp3's courtesy of the SXSW website. I promise to do better next year.
