Firsty, my thoughts are with all of those who have been effected by the tragic drunk driving accident here at SXSW that occurred early this morning. For more details on this story you can check out our report & ongoing updates.

Secondly, I would like to say that after using B Cycle Bike Sharing in Austin, I couldn’t be more excited for Philly to get in on the action.

Now onto the spirit of what SXSW is all about celebrating… THE MUSIC. I got a chance to walk through more of the east 6th area yesterday.  In every venue there was a punk showcase blowing the snapbacks off of the bald and beefy security guards.  I landed at what seemed like the end of the punk air stream, Holy Mountain.  I caught Drowners, a band out of New York.  Their punchy, fast brand of songs was immediately magnetizing.  Their onstage verve matched too.  Caught up with the band after, stay tuned.
