SXSW 2017

Jim and Greg have slight tans, can't possibly eat another bite of BBQ and their ears are still ringing. All signs of a successful trip to Austin, Texas for the South By Southwest Music Conference. Each year Jim and Greg make the trip to catch up on the latest trends and discussions in the music industry. On the show they catch up with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoloselic, weigh-in on Nile Rodgers's keynote presentation and report on the ContraBanned showcase that featured bands representing the nations affected by the Trump administration's travel band. And, of course, they share all the new music they heard.
