Anyone been to this before? In comparison to SXSW, what's it like?
in NYC when it was on, by coincidence. I just got tickets for gigs that I wanted to go to rather than buy a pass as it was my first time in the city and I wanted to do more than just watch bands. They have insane line ups though (I saw Xiu Xiu, Marnie Stern and Mika Miko on the same bill) and it's good fun. Highly recommended.
so you can buy gig tickets seperately as well? that sounds good, means i could just but individual gig tickets as and when
and the nice person at Kill Rock Stars put me on the guestlist for their night when I e mailed her to say I didn't have a credit card!
its not as big as SXSW and its spread out across Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. i wouldn't bother with a pass unless someone is getting one for you.
it is a really fun week to go NYC, though. as said above you can buy tickets for individual evening shows, mix those up with the free day shows at the cake shop / pianos / etc and some DIY shows (see www.toddpnyc.com) and you'll have an incredible and exhausting week.
