I usually avoid SXSW because of the crowds, but I did attend a showcase for Takashi Kamide, who miraculously was able to travel from Japan. He was at my neighbors, Naoko and Jonathan's house, a block away. Naoko made amazing Japanese appetizers. We sat and listened to Takashi Kamide out on their deck, under the stars, with a nice breeze. Emotions were high and the music was hauntingly beautiful. It was a wonderful evening.
