First, read this week’s column that provides a preview of this year’s South By Southwest Festival. It’s in this week’s issue of The Reader and online right here.

Then, go RIGHT HERE and read my Day 1 report from SXSW featuring the bands pictured below. All my day journals will be posted at The Reader website, but will be linked from Lazy-i, where all photos will be displayed, with a bit of commentary, as below.

Folkie John Moreland had the honor of being the first performance I took in at SXSW 2014. Here he is on The Buffalo Lounge Stage playing a song used in the TV show Sons of Anarchy.

Cute, precocious Stillwater band DEERPEOPLE may be familiar to folks who attended Lincoln Calling over the years as they're a regular festival staple, as they are at SXSW. Also at The Buffalo Lounge.
