Okay, I promise that my blog postings about SXSW press coverage will stop soon… but this is one I find really cool and worth sharing. Andrew O’Hehir at Salon.com filed a couple of reports from the festival, and they’re worth reading because he’s a talented writer more than anything else (but yes, he says some nice things about us, too).
Check out his first report (covering Before the Music Dies, Al Franken: God Spoke, loudQUIETloud: A Film about the Pixies, and more) by clicking here.
And then, check out his second report (covering OilCrash, Maxed Out, The Oh in Ohio, and more).
Two of my favorite excerpts from his coverage:
“You know you’re at the South by Southwest festival when the guy in front of you in the popcorn line at the movies, the shambling dude with the giant Afro comb stuck in his giant Afro, actually is ?uestlove of the Roots, rather than just some hipster who looks like him.”
“In its own unthreatening, vintage-clothes-‘n’-cappuccino manner, this festival is launching one protest after another against the way America is right now and how it’s being run.”
