Day one - South x Southwest 2010

by Janeen Shaitelman

Picture a hip loud town inundated with musicians and those in the music industry from all over the world. Now throw in thousands of “happy” college students and 20-somethings dressed in green from head to toe doing what one does on St. Patrick’s Day in a party town. Now mix them all together, thrown in some BBQ, beautiful weather and there you have it...

My first day at South x Southwest. I am trying to get my bearings and figure that I want to catch some artists I love, and those that I dont know yet. Last night’s showcase at Stubb’s featured Visqueen, The Walkmen, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Broken Bells and Spoon.  Today promises to offer a lot more.
