Now that the dust has settled for most of you (though some bands may still be touring their way home), what did all you South By Southwest attendees think of the festival this year?
What did you expect to get out of going to Austin? Did it happen for you?
What were the highlights, the hi-jinx, the hiccups?
How many showcases do you have to play to make it worth the trip?
Should bands who are serious about their music careers plan to make SXSW a focal point of next year’s calendar, or has it become an over-bloated boondoggle?
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.
