    Music and tech festivals can feel so overwhelming that, despite all the great bands and mindblowing technological installations, it’s often barely worth the anxiety. In response to this cultural and content overload, every festival now has its own app to help make sense of the lineup. I used the Bonnaroo and Outside Lands apps last year which, for the most part, helped me keep my sanity while also getting to check out all the acts I’d planned on seeing. SXSW is no different — in fact, as the most technologically-focused of the big music and culture events in the United…

    There’s a party going down at Bottom Lounge this Saturday, and it’s gonna be a great time. 4 Chicago bands will be playing their last sets in town before heading down to Austin, TX for the South By Southwest music festival. Molehill will be headlining the night, and they’ll be joined by some of my favorite acts: The Future Laureates, Vintage Blue, and Steve Stone. I actually tried to set up almost the same lineup for a show I put together at The Empty Bottle, but schedules weren’t working out for us. Vintage Blue and The Future Laureates have played together once or…
  • McDonald's is going to play SXSW this year

    For McDonald’s, hitting on a fresh idea that will bring people back to the Golden Arches is no small task. Don Thompson, 25-year McDonald’s veteran, couldn’t do it. He stepped down as CEO on March 1. Steve Easterbrook, his replacement, plans to “allow technology to do the heavy lifting” when it comes to making customers happier. It’s the opposite of a “back to basics” approach; Easterbrook wants innovation. Maybe he’ll find it this month at South by Southwest (SXSW), the annual music-festival-turned-creative-confab in Austin, Texas.
