South By Southwest's music festival, held in Austin since 1987, strings together a medley of shows at a bunch of different venues over the course of six days. The hundreds of tried-and-true as well as up-and-coming artists taking part in SXSW draw crowds numbering more than 10,000.

Here are a few of the headliners who hit center stage last Wednesday.

Spirited Away

If you think covering the world of wine and spirits is fun, imagine going to work on a Saturday morning and tasting 16 vodkas before 10 a.m., followed by 14 flavored vodkas, then 13 white rums. This is my life . . .

Beer and Brats

We spend a lot of time here talking about what’s new and exciting (“hot,” I guess, is what the kids call it), following trends, and making sure we tell you all about what’s happening, food-wise, in our fair city. But it’s a sad day when new opening trumps old favorite, so we felt it was time to pay homage in our blog to an important category of restaurant: the oldie but goodie (OBG). These OBG’s may well become a regular part of our blog, and they’re also the spots where you’re likely to find the 7x7 editors on any given night. Got an OBG you want to tell us about? Leave a comment and let us know.
