Neil Young åpner neste års SXSW
Det årlige musikkbransjeseminaret SXSW i Austin, Tx åpner hvert år med en innledende taler (key note speach). De senere årene har åpningstalen vært avholdt i form av et åpningsintervju. Det er all grunn tilå tro at det blir svært trangt om plassene når filmskaperen Jonathan Demme skal samtale live med Young, som ellers ikke er kjent for å være spesielt snakkesalig.
Her er den offisielle pressemeldingen fra SXSW:
