Currently, I’m planning the trip to SXSW 2015. While I’ve been approved for the Music event, I’m working on getting other writers out. My plan is to have the staff of Korean Indie all head out to Austin to cover the event. As opposed to Seoulsonic or individual shows, I think that SXSW will need a bigger group of people. This will let the site had multiple angles and opinions.
This will also be my first SXSW and probably the first for many of the writers. So now while in planning mode, I also need to raise the money to get writers to Austin and pay for housing and food while we’re there.
To do this, the Online Store will be having a week-long sale (November 14-21) on Korean Indie merch. This won’t include band-related merchandise. By buying items from the store, this will definitely help fund the cost of the trip.
