SXSW DAY THREE RECAP/HIGHLIGHTS - We kicked things off on Day Three at the daytime performance by Dallas-based artist Johnny Lloyd Rollins. We'd seen him in the past, and this time around he was fully-plugged-in - VERY good stuff. Lots of publishers in the house from both the US and UK. After Johnny, we stumbled upon a really great SF-based group - Forrest Day. Think Matisyahu/System Of A Down/Sublime thrown into a bong and smoked. These guys are Alt-radio friendly - and still unsigned and unpublished. An early-evening set by Lex Land was awesome (although the sound in the venue/art gallery was horrific) - labels, managers, publishers, bookers - and Perez Hilton! - were in attendnace. We had a bunch of meetings with film/TV music supervisors after this, but managed to catch the tail end of The Bird And The Bee's set. Good times.
