By the Colorado river

How can we believe that less than a year before, we had not yet met with Terry Reid, the song “Feel right” did not exist, that SXSW was a dream for us and Austin just an inaccessible city ?

Tomorrow Happens here. That is the motto of the SXSW festival. We could not find better.
