South By South West - the biggest best music fest in the world - Here We Come!

Bethan Elfyn | 22:10 UK time, Tuesday, 11 March 2008

This week's introducing show in Wales is a SXSW preview in anticipation of the monster of all music festivals, with Welsh solo artist, Cate Le Bon in Session, plus music from bands like Fleet Foxes, Apache Beat, and Neon Neon who are all playing at the festival.

Its a show I had to record before flying out in Monday's gales from Heathrow. I travelled for over 24hours, via an unscheduled stop overnight in Chicago in the end to arrive at my destination. Rather than opt for a corporate hotel next to a steaming highway, this year I've opted for some unlikely accomodation for this years festival - The Bed Rox Inn, a B&B on the outskirts of town, and now I feel like I've trully arrived in Texas!

Austin Welcome!

Roadrunners in the garden, Coyote's howling behind the cactus trees and two lovely donkies called Juan and Santos to pet. So far so very Texas and not a party in sight.

More photos this way...

I'm off this evening to find the first of the free parties around Austin central, check back for regular reports of the sights and sounds from Austin from myself and Huw Stephens.
