SXSW Music 2011 Kicking Off Today

South by Southwest (SXSW) Music officially kicks off today. The conference, which happens in Austin, Texas every March, is an interactive, film and music conference. The interactive conference, which covers web, social, mobile, gaming, marketing, advertising, and the convergence of all of the above, has just wrapped up and you can read my reports on it on my personal blog (warning: they're mostly tech-speak), and the final reports are still to come, in fact.

Over the next five days I'll be reporting on both the sessions and the live shows and showcases, of which there are many just in the realm of metal. I can't even keep track, but you can get a good rundown of metal events at SXSW 2011 here:
