SXSW advice to musicians: 'Keep that damn day job!'



Just a quick post before I head into South by Southwest's Woody Guthrie panel. Great shows last night by Kimbra, Dr. John, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, the Raconteurs' Brendan Benson (with the Animals' Eric Burdon sitting in), and more. Will post some comments and video clips during next break, assuming there ever is one.

Meanwhile you can follow my SXSW life on Twitter via @billforman.

And now, just because I've found one of the few place in Austin where wifi seems to be reliably functioning, here's a little clip of Doomtree's Dessa from yesterday's panel on Maximizing Alternative Income As A Hip-Hop Artist. (And be sure to check the Indy's Doomtree interview from today's issue here.)

Other more universal advice at the panel included cultivating "inexpensive tastes" and, as Brother Ali noted: "If you have a choice, you should keep that damn day job!"
