Bruce Hornsby to Moderate SXSW Panel: Dead-By Association at SXSW 2013

Bruce Hornsby will moderate a panel at next year’s SXSW on his longtime association with the Grateful Dead. In the panel “Dead-By Association,” Hornsby will discuss how his longtime affiliation with the Grateful Dead has taken him from Top 10 hits to a range of rural festivals in just 20 short years. “It’s every hit songwriters dream to be called Vince Welnick’s backup keyboardist,” Hornsby said in a statement. “Who needs arenas and Billboard hits when you can sustain your career on sit ins with The Trippin Tailgater.” Hornsby’s fellow panelists include: Jackie Greene, Branford Marsalis, Chris Robinson and the members of The National. Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tompson is also slated to moderate SXSW panel focused on his trademark Phish t-shirt called “One Shirt Tour: Dry Cleaning Bills and Fishman’s Dresses.”

This might be the best/most inside April Fools joke I’ve ever seen.

Little by little the bird feathers its nest, and object by heart burnished object we surround ourselves with lovely necessities of memory and function. It is these things that make a silly Apartment a Home or a silly Wednesday an Occasion. Whether my nest is an old farmhouse, a sixth floor tenement walk up, or a brownstone basement... whether I share it with family, vagabonds, women of heart and mind, or a little brown cat and a sweet ginger banjo, my principal joy is filling it with light and laughter (and corralling).
