SXSW Day 3: Bob Mould, Grimes, Icky Blossoms, The Men, Eleanor Friedberger, more…

I'm writing this at 30,000 feet above some place between Austin and Omaha where dinosaurs once roamed the earth before the great Ice Age wiped it all away, long before anyone cared about weeklong music festivals in Austin, TX.

I recently had a conversation with another Omaha music critic who was giving me grief for skipping the last day of SXSW. "Why would you want to miss Saturday? I don't...

SXSW Day 2: The Jesus and Mary Chain, Neon Trees, Glen Hansard, Purity Ring, Cults, more…

Another day of bands, but better weather at South By Southwest 2012. Let's get right into it.

Typically, covering SXSW means a lot of walking around. There's this falsity that all the venues are located along 6th Street aligned one right next to the other like a perfect string of pearls.

Things don't always work as you plan at SXSW. The festival has a lot of moving parts, and they're not always in sync. Bands play short...
