Countdown to South by Southwest

I realized this morning that I only have three more nights in my own bed before I fly to Austin for the annual South by Southwest music conference.

I will be covering the event (the showcases, awards, conferences and parties) for CL and starting Friday night (if everything goes according to plan) you'll be able to read my daily blog right here at Tampa Calling.

In true New Media Douchebag fashion, in addition to the blog, I'll be Tweeting (@jorantampa, #sxsw) and shooting as much video as I can. So tweet up, bitches, cuz I'm going to be giving the play-by-play on everything from Quincy Jones' keynote speech to the PJ Harvey/John Parrish set at Stubb's, not to mention David Yow's set with The Dicks at the Austin Music Awards. You can be jealous now. Peep the whole schedule here

I'll also be attending daytime conferences with names like "Bloggers are Now in Control" and "Social Networks for the Anti-Social." Riveting stuff, I know. What's more, I also scored a badge for the Interactive portion of the conference where I'll get to attend workshops with the CEOs of companies like Opera and FriendFeed.

But I'm sure all you care about is me getting wasted with the dude from The Proclaimers or seeing pictures of Juliette Lewis. All in good time, my friends.

But seriously, if there's something you'd like me to catch - leave a comment. And keep checking the blog for the daily updates starting Friday.
