+1000. I saw plenty of cute hipster girls walking around, but SXSW is by nature kind of a sausage fest.

Well I wouldn't consider SXSW to represent much of what is cutting edge in music for that matter. I mean, badges (all access passes) are $700 and a year or two ago there was a Harley Davidson pop-up dealership set up outside Red Eyed Fly. There's still lots of cool shit going on, but it's basically just a giant corporate music festival. Nothing more, nothing less.
