No SXSW For Me This Year – March 12th, 2015

For the first time in many years, I’m not attending the SXSW Music Conference. I can’t tell you how bummed I am about this. Then why skip it? For a number of reasons.

One, I was burnt out. I think I’ve attend the last six years in a row and it’s all starting to blur. I figured a year off might recharge my desire to attend in 2016. The fest might feel a little more special after a break.


Two, I need to concentrate on launching the comics career. That means checking out comic cons and my travel budget is finite. After the badge, hotel and airfare, SXSW is an expensive excursion. For the same amount of money as SXSW, I could attend 2-3 cons.

Three, well, I don’t have a three. That’s it. But I don’t want to leave you empty handed. Click here and you’ll be taken to a torrent of over 800 tracks by SXSW artists.


Full disclosure, the torrent is totally legal… ish. The tracks are up on the SXSW site and they are free. I’m just not sure everyone would want to be bundled in the torrent.

If you need a great torrent client for your Mac, I’d recommend Transmission.
