Even after all these years of being an observer/commentator about the music world, it's fun to know that I can still experience some firsts.
I'm in Austin for the first time during South By Southwest.
I'll be with the Ustream.tv Studio folks most of the time, at the way-too-cool venue The Belmont. (There aren't much nicer places to spend SXSW, I'd imagine.) I'll be "on air" daily as part of the "Are You Really Experienced?" music/tech discussions, and then generally trying to see what kind of havoc I can get myself into.
It will be pure sensory overload, I feel certain. I'll try to process it as best I can, and redirect it back out here for you.
Meanwhile, if you want to give me any directions, caveats, pitfalls to avoid, barbecue to consume...follow me on Twitter @tuneinlucas or send an old-fashioned email to email@example.com.
