For the first time at South by Southwest, rock & roll retailers Rhino will be administering the Rhino Musical Aptitude Test, aka the "search for the ultimate music geek."
It goes down 3pm, Friday, March 14, at the Convention Center in conjunction with the yearly Flatstock poster show and is open to the public, first come, first served. The winner gets 100 essential Rhino CDs and a spot on the mailing list … for life.
Three hundred and five multiple-choice questions, one hour. Are you breaking into a cold sweat just thinking about it?
If so, you can preregister here to get practice questions.
Oh, and Roky Erickson's set to host it.
