"480 Minutes" - SXSW rocked!

So glad I overcame my unwillingness to ask for help getting to South By Southwest (aka SXSW, aka South-bye) -- there were some incredible performances, we got to meet some really cool people, we were serenaded by R.E.M. while having a bite at Stubb's BBQ (it was their sound check), and we even got to spend several hours with John Doe of X (he tried a bite of my snapper dish at dinner!). I personally also got to see X (twice), John Doe solo, The Wombats, a band from Tel Aviv, Israel, called Monotonix (first time in twenty years I felt in danger of bodily harm throughout the set -- with the threat being the band members themselves...'twas exhilarating!), The Wedding Present, Birdmonster, Okkervil River, The Heavy, Gentleman Auction House, Jeffrey Lewis and the Jitters, Frightened Rabbit, Ravens and Chimes, The Raveonettes (kinda sorta twice), and Vampire Weekend (amongst others!) . Thanks again to everyone who donated to the "send BAGeL Radio to South By Southwest" fund drive, none of that would have happened without your generous support.

Today's "480 Minutes" show will feature new songs from Clinic (Liverpool, UK), Colour Revolt (Oxford, MS), Plants And Animals (Montreal, Canada), Finn Riggins (Hailey, ID), Twin Tigers (Athens, GA), Lemuria (Buffalo, NY), Whitey On The Moon (San Francisco, CA), Billy Bragg (Bridport, UK), The Young Werewolves (Philadelphia, PA), The Ting Tings (Salford, UK), Peter Morén (of Peter Bjorn and John, Stockholm, Sweden), Head of Femur (Chicago, IL), Voyager One (Seattle, WA), Ghosty (Lawrence, KS), Man Man (Philadelphia, PA), and LCD Soundsystem (New York, NY).

Please tune in to "480 Minutes" today and every Friday. The show runs live from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time, the is rebroadcast starting at 7pm, then twice more on Saturday. On Saturday night at midnight we return to regular BAGeL Radio programming.
