Let's cut to the chase.
I'm going to have an out of building experience and you're coming with me.
Here's the minimum you can expect:
Wednesday March 12, 8pm CT
Thursday March 13th 12:30 CT
Shout Out Louds
and that night:
March 13th 8:00 CT
Yo La Tengo
My Morning Jacket
I'll be there with:
Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney and the NPR blog Monitor Mix)
Stephen Thompson (NPR Music's Song of the Day)
Robin Hilton (All Songs Considered producer)
Joel Didriksen (photographer)
and a staff of talented engineers and producers that will make your house/office sound like Austin.
Get a good set of speakers hooked up to your computer; headphones will sound great too. We will podcast much of this on the All Songs Considered Live Concert podcast, So subscribe soon.
Some of NPR's amazing stations will help make all this happen and they'll be broadcasting some of the shows on radio.
If they're not carrying it in your area, you can hear it webcast here at NPR.org.
After 19 years of directing a news show I finally get to go to SXSW. There will be a lively blog, interviews, pictures and of course music.
My out-of-building experience will be webcast.
