Actually, I'm not going to Austin today; rather, I'm getting in the car and driving to Austin with two other intrepid souls. I will actually be in Austin itself on Thursday. Of course, my colleagues will continue to let you know about stuff that's going on around town in other blog posts, as they're wont to do, while I tool around Austin checking out the free music and showing you that SXSW can be done on the cheap (could I afford this any other way? No.) Look for daily updates on our road trip here on our blog, as well as on my Twitter account (brick_house). Yes, I have one now.
