Seattle Times: Matson On Music
Seattle Times’ Andrew Matson posted a pre-festival media encrusted article highlighting various Seattle bands headed to Austin this week for SXSW. The first of many SXSW posts includes a vignette of SXSW live performance chaos (in all its serendipitous bliss), a short Q&A with The Head and the Heart, music videos and more. Heading south to cover the festival, Matson vows to be a dedicated Seattle band groupie who you can live vicariously through by reading his blog updates. Matson will religiously follow hip-hop act Shabazz Palaces, jangle-rock band Tea Cozies, folk band The Head and the Heart and UW dance-music duo Beat Connection all over Austin and chronicle Seattle’s strong musical presence at the festival.
