So this year, thanks so some very generous people, we were able to throw two parties at SXSW. The first, yesterday at Lucky Lounge, was a great success, with a killer lineup of Berklee students and alumni: Amber Rubarth, Jordan Tarrant, Nini & Ben, Merry Go Round, Ann Driscoll (check out her performance), A House A Home, and Melissa Ferrick. We’ll be posting more video and pics as we go. Now we’re up and off to our second party of the week at Friends, where we get to hear Ann, Jordan, and Nini & Ben again, plus Audible Mainframe, The Young Republic, Stefan WM, Love Like Fire, and Shayna Zaid & The Catch. Stay tuned!

For all of us, the week will culminate with our student and alumni showcase on Saturday, October 24 from 1-5, featuring Sex!, Zigmat, Nini & Ben, Man on Earth, the Fast Romantics, and Nathan Reich.
