SXSW 2011: 6 reviews & a mix

At the pace of the uber-fast, Twitter-ific world we live in now, last month’s SXSW 2011 music festival might be already gone and forgotten. But for some of us (like me) the experience still resonates. Thirty-plus live shows, tons of memorable moments, and a whole lot of tofu kimchi tacos from a food truck: it was all part of the world’s biggest and most exciting live music festival. I just hope I can go again. And even if you weren’t there (or you’ve already forgotten) you can share the experience two ways:
