South by Southwest starts today in Austin. And the intrepid Stephen Becker is on his way down to Austin as I type this. So’s KERA interactive director Alan Melson. And next week, they’ll be joined by KXT’s April Kinser and Dane Walters. Listen for Stephen’s radio pieces on the interactive conference and the music conference on KERA FM. If you miss them, we’ll have em all here – as well as blogging and some great music videos.
One of our favorite unsung parts of South By Southwest is Flatstock, an annual concert poster show. Before he took off, Stephen talked to some North Texans who will be flaunting their work there: Nevada Hill in Denton and the duo Connor Hill and Matt Brinker, who call themselves Magnificent Beard. Fortunately, Dane and April went along to make these two new installments to our Artist Studio Tour.
Check back later next week to see more about how they all fare at Flatstock.
First up: Matt and Connor – and WuTang.
Next, enjoy Nevada walking you through the process of making a poster.
