SXSW DAY TWO RECAP/HIGHLIGHTS - Wednesday night was a bit rough on Team TALENTfilter, so we kept the schedule a bit light - the BMI brunch at the Four Seasons certainly helped cure the hangovers! Ed Harcourt sounded great during his daytime set, as did TALENTfilter fave Meiko (we noticed a bevvy of Alternative radio programmers in attendance KROQ, 91X, KEDJ) - not sure why considering she's more of a Triple A / Hot AC artist ...later in the evening, the place to be was The Parish, where many of the Hotel Cafe regulars performed (funny - three of the lady performers, Lenka, Holly Conlan, and Laura Jansen, wore black & white polka-dotted dresses not knowing the others would wear the same!) Sara Bareilles and The Proclaimers were the 'suprise guests'.
