Well, I'm exhausted! SXSW was incredible as usually. Even when you think you are prepared, there is still much more to learn. It's definitely not for the faint-hearted. There were ups, there were downs, and there was weird (here's looking at you, lady that takes her cat out for a walk in the middle of downtown). The best part was not just all the music I got to see for free, but the broad range of genres I was able to indulge in for a short time. Don't worry. It doesn't have to end. If you missed it this year, here are some of great bands/musicians I got to experience. Though I saw for more than what's on this list, I can say that these artist really rocked my socks off. There is something here for everyone! Just. press. play.
