festivals schmestivals (bah humbug)
South by Soutwest film and interactive festivals kick off today. Music gets started next Wednesday. I’m sad to say I barely even know what’s on the schedule this year; either I’m working too hard or my hipness quotient took a sudden, steep dive when I hit thirty.
I’m also, for the first time since we moved to Austin, unsure about whether I’ll get to see any of this year’s Old Settler’s Music Festival. That’s especially sad considering the the festival has Tim O’Brien doing a solo set and playing with his old band Hot Rize (with the amazing Bryan Sutton in tow), plus the David Grisman Quintet. An incredible lineup.
We’ll just see what happens…
