It’s one of those days where I’m closing up a bunch of open windows similar to those old News and Tracks days, and I stumbled across a bunch of old links to some great shows from SXSW in Austin a couple of weeks ago.

Well, that’s a good 8 hours of listening, so I’m gonna leave you with your speakers. Enjoy!
