The best from SXSW

After reviewing many reports, photos, and video about the Beastie Boys at SXSW in Austin, Texas, I recommend the following:

  • Read Billboard's report on the SXSW panel discussion.

  • Watch KXAN TV's video report on the SXSW panel discussion (Windows Media Player required). The Beastie Boys appear in the first few minutes of the video.

  • Watch a fan-filmed video from the SXSW panel discussion to get the answer to the burning question "What gum does Adam Yauch chew?"

  • Read the Vancouver Province's report on the SXSW panel discussion. The article quotes Yauch as saying, "For us, we like to revisit our hardcore and instrumental roots every few years and it's probably time we did it again."

  • Download an mp3 of the Beastie Boys appearance on Zane Lowe's show on Radio 1. (Please note you must wait 45 seconds before downloading the file.)

  • Watch video of the Q&A the band did with the audience after the SXSW screening of Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That! at the Beastie Boys group: Part 1 / Part 2 / Part 3.

  • Review photos tagged with "Beastie Boys" and "SXSW" at

  • Look at Kirstin Cummings' photos of the Beastie Boys secret show at

  • Read the Houston Chronicle's interview with Yauch while at SXSW.

  • If you have found SXSW items worth a look, drop me a note and I'll add them to the list.
