They say that half the job is merely showing up. That is some truth right there. Listen to me now, believe me later on.
I don't know ALL the details about this whole thang but SXSW NEEEDS you to come down an volunteer. Read all abut it on the website, or even better, come down Sunday and sign up and be a part of it. We'll give you all the information there. I bet you get a pass or some shit, I don't know. I know I did it for the New Music Seminar in 1994 and I was fully credentialled up. And such. Details below, see you there.
