Three Imaginary Girls

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

{Are you at SXSW right now? Or are you like me, sadly not rocking out in Austin but eager for updates from the field? Either way, TIG is going to post an "open thread" for each day of SXSW, where show-going fans can post comments, and the rest of us can send suggestions/pleas for updates to those lucky peeps (ahem, LIZ!!) who are hooting it up Texas stylee this week. So please — chime on in the comments section below!}

If I were at SXSW right now, this would be my imaginary schedule for day one, Wednesday, March 12, 2008:
