I’m approaching the gigantic South By Southwest conference-festival-tradeshow like I approach most things — starting with small exploratory trips around the periphery before diving in headfirst. Today I stood in various lines for about 90 minutes to get my “platinum” registration badge. The picture captures but a small portion of the endless queue, which snaked all the way around the gigantic Austin Convention Center.

My platinum badge is not some kind of VIP item, it just means I am here for all three segments of the 10-day event: Interactive, Film and Music.

A Small Update

In: Filmmaking

Looking at the date on that last post, I really need to catch this blog up to date. I’ll be screening Troubadour Blues Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Folk Alliance International Conference in Memphis, and Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Winter Roots and Blues Roundup in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada — and then sticking around to talk to music and filmmaking students on Monday and Tuesday.

Here’s an ad that’s running next month in Video Librarian, a magazine for media buyers at library systems and university libraries.

Troubadour Blues received two great reviews (with some video excerpts) on the Americana music website, No Depression. Read Easy Ed’s review here. A review by Terry Roland can be found here.

While you’re at it, look around the site. It is a great community of musicians, writers, and music-loving folks of all kinds, and it has some videos that you can’t see anywhere else.
