OOOOooo i'd love to make it the Austin City Limits Festival, zoomie. That '04 schedule bout makes me wet myself with glee!

Isn't the SXSW (South By South-West) festival convention thing also held in Austin? I know the world's largest record/cd collector's convention is usually in Austin sometime in March or April.

Well, this year's vacation isn't set yet so maybe i oughta think about scheduling it in September instead of August (August is a madhouse at work so I usually high-tail it outta there that month, but then Sept is busy too, hmmmm).
