The truth is that I will use any excuse to post the above picture of Devin the Dude. However, in this instance there’s a reasonable explanation, specifically the final print version of the LA Weekly’s SXSW coverage. I had a chance to edit and I think improve on my original Devin story, which ended up in the paper as well as parts of two other entries. Additionally, editor Randall Roberts and Alec Hanley Bemis share their take on that weird week in Austin. Even if you don’t read the article, download the songs below, two of the greatest weed smoking songs in music history. Yes, even better than “The Big Yellow Joint.”
