I sat down to make a top 5 list of my favorite musical moments from South By Southwest 2009, but as I started putting it together, I thought I’d rather just give my comments in each of a few different categories. Read ahead to see:

  1. Which band had the best choreography?
  2. What was the most average performance that suggested a great album?
  3. What band is most likely to cause an indie music nerd pit to break out?
  4. Who was my biggest surprise of the festival?
  5. What band clearly got tired of playing shows and seeing me at them?
  6. What act caused my fanboy drool reflex to start?
  7. Which band needs the most practice to go from interesting to awesome?
  8. Who caused a crowd to go from standoffish to dancing madly?
  9. Which show that I tried to attend got visited by the fuzz?

This year, I saw about 2% of the artists playing at South By Southwest.  So did the rest of us.  And the professionals?  Probably less than that.  So you need our input because the best bands out there are hard to find.  We’ll cover music and shows 365 days a year, and then we’ll obsess over SXSW for a couple of months out of the year.  stay tuned.
