Here we are. Today is the 20th Annual Bloodshot Records Yard Dog Art Day Party at SXSW! Back in 1996, Bloodshot and Yard Dog Folk Art Gallery in Austin, TX joined forces to bring some organic, homespun fun to the craven, corporate glad-handing and back-slapping nexus of the music industry: the South by Southwest music conference.

Bloodshot @ SXSW 2014: Looking Back at Two-Week-Old Memories

March 31st, 2014 by bsradmin

The modern traveling speed of information creates the illusion of time moving more quickly than it once did. SXSW was just a little over two weeks ago, but it seems like it was in 1914 (perhaps if it were 1914, we wouldn't have had to walk by SXSubway (yes the sandwich chain had a stage) and see drunken brand ambassadors...
