South By Southwest is one of the biggest music festivals in the world. Thousands of bands and fans hit the bars, clubs and streets of Austin, Texas every year. The music industry pays close attention too, scouting for new talent. More than 20 Colorado bands made it there this year. CPR's new music station, OpenAir, went with them, recording the shows and talking to Colorado musicians looking for their big break. OpenAir's Corey Jones tells CPR's Mike Lamp what he'll remember from South By Southwest. [Photo: Corey Jones]
