DREAM SHOW….It’s a good thing I won’t be attending the Music Festival portion of SXSW… because in looking at the daunting list of amazing bands performing this year, it’s hard to know where to start. I wouldn’t miss Beth Orton, Tokyo Nites, Jad Fair & Lumberob, The Gena Rowlands Band, The Silos, and Midori Umi. If you were there, which bands would you see?

If you were in charge of programming your very own show at SXSW, what would your line-up look like? For me, Cake, Gomez, Joe Ely, and The Paladins would make for quite a evening.
