Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Since it's officially 2008, it's time to start planning for my favorite music festival of the year: South By Southwest in Austin, Texas! Kicking off March 7th this year, it's sure to be another fantastic year of fun, Texas style!

I am so excited that The Breeders will be there that if I could I would hibernate right up until then to avoid the painful art of anticipation.

Carolyn Mark is always all over the festival and I am sure this year will be no different! She is the hardest working girl with one of my favorite albums of 2007, "Nothing Is Free." If you can't make it to the festival, check her out next time she is in town, you won't be disappointed!
