Kick it Off
Last night was cool.
Started the night walking down Red River in the setting sun. Got to the panel, ordered a Stella.
The Future of Music Journalism.
Old School and the New School.
Looking around, I was impressed at the attendance. And impressed by questions and comments from the crowd.
Such as Sean at Buzz Grinder blog.
Seems to me that the punk rock movement has had more of an impact as an ethos, it lives.
Kids are connecting to kids about music.
That we all love and live by.
Dodge Lile from My Own Kentucky Blog thinks we can all live together harmomiously. The twitters, facebookers, and old school and classic "written" journalists.
David Prince of Billboard.com sees the end, a "zero point" when journalists, music journalists in their classic sense will no longer be relevant or needed.
The Q&A period was very interesting and relevant.
Once the panel was over, the Minor Mishap Marching Band caravaned its way into the Mohawk's outdoor stage. Made me think of New Orleans and Tom Waits.
There was a good feeling in the air.
Today I am researching bands whom I will be meeting with over the next two days and gearing up, getting straight for the fun fun fun. I'm also plotting my route/transportation issues because with the Longhorns game also happening today traffic could be a fuckton of a nightmare.
See you in the park motherfuckers.
