Check out Soundcheck's first of two special broadcasts from the South by Southwest music festival! Today we welcomed a slew of awesome guests to talk about the festival, including Amy Phillips of Pitchfork Media and John Kunz of Austin's Waterloo Records (Visa, beware)
Plus, two locals came on the show to talk about their adopted city and to perform live. Will Sheff of Okkervil River represented for A-town with a live performance of 'Unless It's Kicks' and tipped John off -- off-air, sorry folks -- to the best place for Tex-Mex in the city. Later, Red Hunter rounded up a bass player and a small choir for a live Peter and the Wolf performance. Stay tuned to the end for Red's advice on how to have a 'real' Austin experience during SXSW...you might be making some cutoff jean shorts.
