Greetings from Austin everyone! I’m going to be here for the next two weeks where, just like last year, I’ll be covering the film and music parts of the South by Southwest Festival. This looks to be a good year. On the film side, there’s the premieres of Source Code (the new movie from Moon director Duncan Jones), Paul, and Bridesmaids. However, I’m more excited to see the new films from Ti West, Takashi Miike, and Miranda July. On the music side, I imagine enfants terribles OFWGKTA will be everywhere, along with 1990s revivalists Yuck, psych-glammers The Smith Westerns, and brittle folk-rockers Wye Oak (whose new album, Civilian, came out on Tuesday and is highly recommended by both Michael and myself).
I’ll be posting daily updates here and tweeting things as they happen on our twitter account, @tangledupinwire, so be sure to stay tuned!
