SXSW 2000

Another South by Southwest, another group of local acts playing the conference that the Chronicle thinks are noteworthy. Simple. And yet, with the turnover of decade and century, more has changed on the local landscape than just a new view of the Colorado from 405 W. Second Street. Over the past couple of years, the Austin Music Awards have reflected a turnover in the local music scene, and nothing mirrors that better than this year's crop of "Picks 2 Click." New faces, new bands, new sounds. New music for a new millennium. SXSW 2000, bring it on.
