Al Gore discusses surveillance culture and spider goats at SXSW

Clearly knowing his SXSW audience, Gore also dropped an Indiana Jones reference at a crucial juncture. AUSTIN, TX—Former vice president Al Gore sat down with Wall Street Journal columnist Walt Mossberg at this year’ SXSW conference to talk about the future—specifically, what Gore sees as the…  …

Music Fridays: Spring Is In The Air Edition

It’s been warm and then cold again, but gradually getting away from winter-cold temperatures. Between this and returning from SXSW, I feel that it’s officially spring and time to take the time to enjoy it a little. And it’s a perfect time to Panda Party! So join us. I should…

Music Fridays: One Day Will Finish SXSW Post

Yes, I’m aware that the long list of videos I meant to include last week for cool bands I’d seen at SXSW got mostly eaten. I will be trying to figure that out, but in the meantime I’m traveling again. This time to Syracuse, to speak at the university about…

Quick round-up on recent stories ignored for SXSW

I’ll be traveling today, but completely back tomorrow for normal working and blogging. Thanks to everyone for hanging in! It’s funny, but it does seem that when I’m traveling and away from blogging, it’s when a whole bunch of stuff goes down that I could probably comment on but don’t…

Music Fridays: SXSW MUSIC Edition

Good morning! I’m still at SXSW and so blogging is slow, but I thought I’d check in share some stuff with you, as well as invite you to Panda Party. I’ve seen a lot of awesome bands so far, but the biggest is probably Gossip.  The good news is that…

Debate over whether the stunt by Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) was helping or misusing the homeless spread from the streets of Austin onto the Internet by…

SXSW Day Three: Juxtapositions Edition

We started off the day going to Flatstock, which is a collection of concert poster artists hawking their wares, and is well worth dropping in, even if just to look or buy postcards. I did buy two Devo posters, from La La Land Posters, but the poster that cracked me…

SXSW Day Two: Ladies!

PBR was giving away free beer at one party we went to. I don’t, as a general rule, drink PBR, but I figured it was funny in light of all the recent anti-hipster haterade out there. Stop hating, people! Without over-the-top hipsters, people-watching during down time at SXSW wouldn’t be…

SXSW Day One, Part I

Wednesday got off to an early and magnificent start at a 12:30 show for The Hounds Below at The Hole in the Wall, a venerable Austin institution that is closer to campus than downtown. Since they have a 60s vibe to them, it was the perfect venue—you can see the…

South by Southwest!

I first started blogging on Pandagon 6 years ago, during the same week as South by Southwest. And so it’s a tradition dear to my heart to spend this week going to shows, taking pictures, and trying to talk up some good bands I saw. Moving from Austin to New…
