Look, we know making all these South-by-Southwest choices is giving you a headache. To take the burden off of you, we, the Village Voice Media music critics, have organized a start-to-finish SXSW itinerary. Don't thank us; our reward is that justice has been done. See you in Austin.
Nine Inch Nails, Mars Volta, Stone Temple Pilots, Dirtbombs, REM, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean, TV on the Radio, Fleur de Tease, Angels and Airwaves, Erykah Badu, Cold War Kids, Marc Broussard and many others on the weekend of October 24-26.
There's a lot of things to see among the rollin' hills of Austin, TX, and we're gonna throw as much of it at you as we can. Don't thank us; we enjoy throwing things. Here's some more shots from Thursday, March 19. PHOTOS BY PATRICK MICHELS
