After a seemingly endless bonanza of big events — our terrific run of archived concerts, the video sessions Bob and Robin have been recording, an assortment of parties big and small — Saturday finds SXSW slowing down a little bit. Today's festival lineup will feature big shows with PJ Harvey and others, as well as high-profile daytime parties thrown by the likes of Rachael Ray (with food and The Hold Steady, among others) and Perez Hilton (with Ladyhawke and, sadly, Perez Hilton), but today marks the beginning of the festival's end.
Some of us have already begun trickling back home to feed pets and soak feet, but we'll still employ a small pocket of hardy gluttons, who are only too happy to soak up more shows, record video of a performance we're dying to see but can't talk about yet, and rock the Twitterverse @allsongs. (How I managed to avoid Tweet-gloating about the Badgers' NCAA tournament thriller last night, I do not know.)
So, for those following Saturday's festivities, any recommendations?
