Here’s a roundup of coverage of the 2011 SXSW Music Festival from public media outlets from around the nation:
– One side effect of SXSW’s surge in popularity is the increased presence of advertising and branding. KUT, Austin’s public radio station, reports on the balancing act of band versus brand here.
And while SXSW 2011 ended Sunday, live recordings from the festival live on:
– John Vanderslice, Ron Sexsmith, and the Old 97’s are just a few of the musicians who showed up to the lobby of the Hilton hotel to perform for KUT. You can listen to all of the live performances here.
– WXPN, a Philadelphia public radio station that supports independent music, has posted videos of live performances from their stage in Austin. Here’s a sample:
– KERA’s Art & Seek blog, based in Dallas, featured many musical performances from various venues. Watch a video from the record label Ramble Creek’s day party. Or see The O’s play in front of the Austin Hotel. Plus, take a ride in a pedi-cab with Cas Haley.
