sxsw: i'm still mad
So, after listening to Louis Black give a lame speech about how SXSW really does care about the fans, and after keeping my cell phone on for two weeks solid, we still have no SXSW wristbands for sale. Having seen the schedule, I'm not entirely sure I WANT a wristband, but I am determined to buy one just for spite. (If I decide not to use it, it will be easy to sell.) This system is totally ridiculous.
My money is that the first round of wristbands will be released tomorrow or Sunday around 10 or 11. It has to be on a weekend, because SXSW can't reasonably expect most Austin music fans to be able to drop everything on a weekday. They promised it would happen before February, and there's only two weeks before the festival in which time they're planning two wristband drops. And Waterloo doesn't open until 10. We shall see. It better not be during church because I have to do the children's sermon (hey, SXSW, people who believe in Jesus like music, too!).
If it happens this weekend, I won't take the time to blog about it, because I'll be fighting for a parking space at Whole Foods. See you kids in line.
