[sxsw video] Carsick Cars - Zhong Nan Hai

(words by Addison Post)

I still have mixed feelings about this music festival. The anarchist in me loathes the public fuck-fest of advertising, promotion, corporate influence, and underlying capitalist agenda. I'm also an active member of said capitalist machine and love consuming copious alcohol outside while listening to music. Sifting through the muck of the marketing is worth it when I find myself on the outskirts of Austin drinking beer in a junkyard under a full moon and watching my new favorite band, Carsick Cars, because that's what SXSW is really all about.
