NX 35

| February 6, 2009

It may not be SXSW, but this is Denton, Texas after all.

This is apparently a conference with the cute little name “conferrette” March 12-15. There’s nothing like making up words to start off on the right foot now is there? Regardless, there are a few names here worth their weight – James McMurtry for one, and sleeper band of the decade Centro-Matic (one of Jeff Tweedy’s favorites).
