SXSW 2007 - 739 free songs!
South by Southwest (SXSW, Inc.) is a private company based in Austin, Texas, dedicated to building and delivering conference and festival events for entertainment and related media industry professionals.
Since 1987, SXSW has produced the internationally recognized Music and Media Conference & Festival.
The music event has grown from 700 people in 1987 to nearly 10,000 in 2006. In 1994, SXSW added a film and interactive component to accommodate these growth industries. SXSW Film and SXSW Interactive events attract approximately 7000 people to Austin every March.
They've made a bittorrent available, containing 739 MP3s (3.1GB) showcasing SWXW artists. I'm hosting it, so if you can't be bothered to download it, bring a blank DVD with you next time you see me :-)
