As I write this, I’m sitting at the gate at Newark Liberty Airport, waiting for my flight to Austin. The ungodly hour is 6:20 a.m. As you read this, hopefully I’m jetting over America, on my way to SXSW.

This is my first visit to SXSW, but I’ve worked hard on my schedule to provide the best possible coverage of this massive event. The festivities begin officially tomorrow, but I’ll be out and about today and tonight, getting the lay of the land.

So check back here each day to see what I’ve been up to. I hope to be able to include photos, and perhaps even some video. You can also follow my adventures on Twitter @popdose.

See you in Austin.

Ken Shane lives in Narragansett, R.I. He is a freelance writer and far and away the oldest Popdose writer. In fact, he may be the oldest writer, period. He wants you to know that he generally does not share his colleagues' love for the music of the '80s, and he does not forgive them for loving it. (Ken passed away in November 2022. R.I.P. —Ed.)
