about a music festival! SXSW 2005 was bigger than we ever imagined more
than 1300 artists (and there were 7000 more who applied!) inside 70 different
venues over four days.
mvyradio was lucky enough to have up-close-and-personal interviews with Jakob and Rami of The Wallflowers [website], plus Melissa Ferrick [website], Brandi Carlisle [website], Charlie Sexton [website], Kathleen Edwards [website], Mary Gauthier [website], Keren Ann, The Dukhs [website] and more. Plus, we witnessed some great interviews from Elvis Costello [website], Brian Wilson [website], and Robert Plant [website](who told this hilarious story about donating to a public radio station in Oregon if they promised never to play Stairway to Heaven [hmm, Robert, we could use a little pizza money, too, come to think about it ].
There were all kinds of music blues, pop, metal, jazz, singer/songwriter, r&b. Inside one night at a single venue, we saw Robert Randolph, Mavis Staples, the Blind Boys of Alabama and Amos Lee [website]. On another night, Elvis Costello, Tift Merritt [website], Mary Gauthier, and Glen Phillips (from Toad the Wet Sprocket) all on one stage. Plus, amazing newcomers like Martha Wainwright, the Jon Butler Trio, the Be Good Tanyas
Barbara Dacey captured some great moments and one-on-one concerts that wed like to share with you. Just click on your choice below and listen away.
