Paul's SXSW Artist Catalog
SXSW takes place in Austin, Texas, in March each year. Over 1,400 artists play in the town over about a week, and to help people choose what to see, Paul Lamere of Sun Labs has created Paul's SXSW Artist Catalog.
All artists are listed, with links through last.fm, YouTube and Flickr. It's sortable by popularity, hotness, newness and so on, a map showing where the bands come from, and tags for genre.
I just wish they did this for the Edinburgh Fring Festival. The Fringe sites, guides. etc are terrible.
(Also, here's a plug for a talk Paul is doing at SXSW - Help! My iPod thinks I'm an emo)
