Rhapsody rocks Austin

Jasmine finds some friends in Austin.

When I first found out I would be coming to SXSW this year, I was a little worried I'd be wandering around solo, looking more than slightly sad and losery. Namely, because I wasn't certain any of the tech reps I work with would have any reason to be here. As it turns out, my fears were for naught, as several digital-music entities that I work with are out in force in Austin, including Zune, Lala, and Rhapsody. (Yay! Friends!) Today, Rhapsody is hosting a six-hour day party replete with live acts, and the good news is that you don't have to be here to get in on the fun. Rhapsody is recording all the live shows and studio sessions, as well as taking a boatload of video and interviewing several of the artists. The content will be made available to Rhapsody users (unlimited for subscribers, or 25 free plays per month for nonsubscribers) starting next week, after all the editing and legal mumbo jumbo is taken care of. For more information, visit Rhapsody Rocks Austin.

Rhapsody posted laptop listening stations around the venue. Who could hope for a better spot than right at the bar?
