If you’re in Austin
this week, look for BLURT as we bum-rush SXSW with the rest of the music-crazed
badgeholders. We’re proud to be  a co-sponsor
of three day parties (details below), and we’ll have copies of our debut print
issue to pass out before we pass out – it’s got features on Neko Case, Antony,
Genesis P-Orridge, the Heartless Bastards, Cheap Trick, Marianne Faithfull and
tons more, plus our cover story on 14 Ways to Beat the Recession and tons of
reviews. Like any good rock mag should! (Details on the issue HERE.)
