South By Southwest 2009 - Lyndsey Parker's Round-Up

By NME Blog

Posted on 24 Mar 09


Well, I've just flown in from South By Southwest, and boy is my liver tired. (Yes, I use that joke every year. It never gets old. Unlike my liver...)

SXSW--Austin, Texas's four-day spree of beer, BBQ, and bands--was last week, and I of course wasted no time indulging in all three B's. But along the way I managed to incorporate another B, blogging.

I naturally attended, and wrote about, a couple big bashes (Playboy's Rock The Rabbit event with Jane's Addiction, and Perez Hilton's diva-themed "One Night In Austin" soiree with Ladyhawke, Little Boots, Solange, et al).

But I spent most of my time running around 6th Street with my camera, chasing down bands and interviewing them at various Austin haunts.

Check out my interviews and blogs below, y'all, while I go detox on a diet of milk thistle and macrobiotic brown rice between now and when the Coachella retox begins next month...
