A quick note, if you're planning to catch the stream of SXSW Live at the North Door tonight, the broadcast starts at 9pm. The fine folks over at SXSW Booking gave me a few more delicious treats for you to sample as you make your way out and about tonight. There's music in the air, you guys. I heard it at lunch. Five bands at once. Percussion Lab Showcase. This showcase features Heathered Pearls, a Brooklyn boy by way of Poland, whose ambient soundscapes are a beautiful dream.
