SXSW in 2017 is, by far, the most chill it’s been in years. The biggest difference this year is a marked reduction in the number of previously huge free and public day parties. Longstanding, multi-day events like the Hype Hotel (presented by music blog aggregator The Hype Machine), Spotify House, Mess With Texas and others didn't happen this year. Even the hugely influential and exceedingly popular Fader Fort reduced its footprint from accommodating several thousand to merely a few hundred after losing its previously held location.

It's both sad and fascinating that, for all the promotion STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and STEAM (the same, but with arts) education has gotten over the past two decades, only a slight handful of college-age acquaintances showed any sign of recognition when I said I was gonna see astronaut Edwin Eugene “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. do a live talk with writer Jeffrey Kluger.

Touring is a risky endeavor. Aside from the possibility of facing shady promoters, ungracious audiences or vehicular failure, a cargo van packed with thousands of dollars in music gear is a prime target for would-be thieves.
Among the most anticipated "unofficial" day parties at music-industry behemoth South by Southwest is the annual Athens in Austin event, presented by the Georgia Theatre and a host of other Athens businesses, including Flagpole.
