David Brown, producer and host of Texas Music Matters from radio station KUT in Austin, joins David Dye for a conversation on World Cafe.

The hot topic in music this week is the South by Southwest Music Festival, one of the most anticipated events of the musical year. The showcase has morphed from a national phenomenon into an event where international acts tap into the American music market.

Brown spotlights a few Texas bands slated to perform, including Okkervil River (who will be featuring guitarist Roky Erickson), Dead Confederate and John Dee Graham.
