This post was written before the tragedy that happened on the night of 3.12. Jesus would definitely be present in such a place of mourning.
300,000 people from around the world have descended on a few miles of my home city for the sprawling series of parties, conferences and concerts known as South by Southwest. For two weeks, our once sleepy hippy town hosts the elite of software, film and, of course, music.
Careers are made or destroyed. Bands set up in alleys. Beer flows like water. A torrential downpour of water. It is the kind of place to see and be seen.
Which begs the question, is there room for Jesus at SXSW?
