SXSW 2013

I seriously don't know where to begin. Before I boarded the plane for SXSW I was already exhausted, but by the time I arrived, had some BBQ and settled in I was beyond amped for the next 9 days of music, tech, film, food, and meeting new folks. The Interactive part of the festival is always a bit lower key than the Music part, but I was once again blown away by the Jefrey Tambor Acting Workshop, and I went to a ton of great panels, parties, and events. The Music part of the festival kicked off on Tuesday night this year, and once it started it never looked back. So many band, so much BBQ, so little sleep. Higlights? Too many, but here's a few.
