Getting psyched for next week’s trip to SXSW.  Check out Rolling Stone’s take on the 25 acts you don’t want miss there.

Whether you are heading to Austin or not, tune into World Cafe next week for a special set of programs on Austin and SXSW.  Some highlights include interviews with Jim Eno of Spoon, up and coming band Wild Child, and Austin songwriter Patty Griffin.  Plus we talk with Roland Swenson, one of the SXSW founders, who shares memories of that first conference in 1987 when the organizers were surprised to have 700 people attend (their goal was to get 150 people there!).
