3:22 ...Static Album Foto.
The hordes are arriving.
An estimated 250,000 visitors crowd Austin's restaurants and shops this week and next...as the annual South By Southwest Tech, film and music festivals flourish.

wonderful new listening options with lots of local radio exposure.
Here's a group from Mexico...Jotdog...with its very lively...'Lluvia de Estrellas'.
