SXSW 2011 Roundup with NPR’s On Point and Spin

Yuck at Stubb's BBQ (Kathryn Yu)

So alright, you’ve read enough, heard enough, had enough of SXSW 2011. Well, indulge me this one last post. Upon returning from Austin, my work wasn’t yet done. Each member of the Spin crew took a moment to reflect via this final best/worst poll thingie. Some great observations in there from wonderfully insightful folks like Doug Brod, Charles Aaron, Steve Kandell, Peter Gaston, William Goodman and Kevin O’Donnell. (Also check out Spin’s Best Photos.)

But that wasn’t all. While embedded in the action, I received an email from NPR, asking if I’d do a post-SXSW chat for On Point with Tom Ashbrook. I did, as did Bay Area music critic Liz Colville (Daily Beast, Pitchfork, Dazed & Confused). We spoke for an hour about our favorite moments of the festival, and even fielded a few calls from listeners. Listen to the talk by clicking here, or here.
