Frequently featured in New Times' pages as the Meatist, Bradford "Bone in the Fan" Schmidt has left the oh-so-quiet confines of Spring Break season here in South Florida for the silence that is South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. Opposite. As a two-time attendee, I can confirm that the clusterscrew of a music festival is a load of fun, but there are few things in life (aside from perhaps the Winter Music Conference) that will leave a body more beaten.
Bradford will share his observations on Crossfade during the next few days, and if you need even more South Florida flair, do follow him on Twitter. We can tell it's already going to be a long, cranky week.
