This town needs a real music festival. We have tons of various film festivals. But no real week-long blow out ala SXSW. Someone needs to start organizing a music fest that showcases District-Baltimore talent. Wouldn’t it be cool to see the Evens alongside BackYard alongside Dan Deacon alongside Head-Roc?

This show—from last night—comes close. Or this D.C. band showcase which DCist writes up. In the meantime, the Lullabyes blog has pretty awesome MP3s of Beach House live at SXSW. [Note: you have to scroll down the site to find it]. Or you can just go here.
