I'm at SXSW
There are so many great Dems in town! Pete Buttigieg, AOC, Tulsi Gabbard, etc. Just being here gives me a warm glow.
I cover the film festival, so I won't be able to attend the town halls, but I will be reviewing The River and the Wall, a documentary about the impact Orange Anus's border wall would have on the environment.

2. It's a big-ass music/tech/politics fest in Austin every year.
A lot of my Austin friends get the hell out of town during SXSW. The city is way overcrowded as it is; SXSW makes the crowding worse, particularly with out-of-state college students puking on sidewalks. Life's too short

2. On a related but tangential note:

Likely the best thing about SXSW this year will be a set from Asterism, a hugely entertaining little trio from Fukuoka, Japan. These three play old-school instrumental hard rock (guitar/bass/drums), no vocals, and they're brilliant. Serious technical skills, but the big draw is that they really "get" this music, and play with great feel. The kicker: they're high school kids. The guitarist, Hal-Ca,* just turned 16 last November.

Short example (they're not always this frantic, but this is fun!):


* That stage name is a play-on-words of sorts: someone Japanese would pronounce those Roman letters very much like her actual name: Haruka.
