Each year, hundreds of bands descend upon Austin, Texas for the annual SXSW music festival. For newcomers, the 5 days and 4 nights spent wandering around 6th Street (Austin’s main drag) can be overwhelming and intimidating. Novice and experienced artists alike can assuage some of their fears and learn how to best spend their time in Texas with this casual, artist-friendly, one-of-a-kind event. The 2010 SXSW music festival will take place March 17th-March 21st.
