such as it is... Kiiiiiii will be there and then embark on a small US tour that will not come even remotely close to here - but of course.
and yes this is just the tip of the SXSW iceberg. Luminous Orange, Boris, Gitogito Hustler, GO!GO!7188, Green Milk From The Planet Orange, Hiromi, 百景, Metalchicks, mothercoat, Muddy World, ねこ虫, OWKMJ, Pistol Valve, 水晶の舟... they will all be missed along side a billion bands that are not from japan
it all makes me wildly emo. every year it does.
