    I know you can’t cover all bands at SxSW – but why wouldn’t you have any on air coverage of a Seattle HOME TOWN BAND- Kinski !?!?!?!?!

    Hi Michal,

    You hit the nail on the head. We love Kinski, but there’s only so much time! Hope you enjoyed the rest of the performances.

    Thanks for checking in,

    We are wondering if we can visit live performances at ACL on Friday the 14th. We’re from the Northwest and don’t have the SXSW passes. Thx.
