Metal Lungies will be covering SXSW 2011, The Hip-Hopish Preview.


Yeah, you read that title right, ML had to cut the procrastination & curb the lallygagging, and to finally go to the madness that is SXSW. About the title, it does say Hip-Hopish, but we touche the whole spectrum in our picks.

If you read this blawg, chances are you subscribe to some of our music tastes, so here are some of our picks from the official showcases (note: we didn’t pick things that would jam up your whole schedule or overlap, because a big part of SXSW is finding and discovering new music on your own…and having enough time to stuff your face with bbq (but…salad for us, please)).

If the following 2 things occur: I am not passed out somewhere, and I have wifi, I will try to have daily updates on the blog. Regardless, be sure to check the twitter, @metallungies where we will have rants, pictures, and deep thoughts about our time at SXSW. Look for a grand ol’ recap next week…or something.
