SXSW: Ann Powers and Todd Martens discuss the first night of music
LA Times music writers Ann Powers and Todd Martens discuss the first day of music at SXSW and touch on the tragic loss of Alex Chilton.
Taped in front of the legendary club Emo's on 6th Street in Austin at 2:30 a.m., the pair talk about their favorites of the day and include a phenomenon only found at a festival with 1,400 bands: the trend of seeing one-and-a-half songs by terrific new bands.
