Dispatch... South by Southwest (day one)

Welcome to SXSW. The world of short sets and bearded zoo animals in plaid. Everything is sponsored and if you're not an officially sanctioned South by Southwest venue then by God you're an unofficially sanctioned one.

Scene here: a picture of you taking a picture of me, if my name were Raphael Saadiq. He opened racously to Heart Attack and didn't let off the throddle.

it is indeed a raucous good time. A bit of a haul for you, absolutely, but I had a friend come over from Dublin this year and he's sworn to make it an annual thing. Just schedule those Texas book signings for March and you'll be good to go.
