Let’s face it, we’re all too broke to go to Austin, and we couldn’t get out of work anyway. There’s this pesky thing called “life” that keeps getting in the way. Allow us to introduce you to Couch by Couchwest.
CXCW is an annual online music festival that is for everyone. No badges, lanyards, bracelets, parking fees, ticket lines, exclusive parties, VIP tents, porta-potties, babysitters, dogsitters, expensive beer prices, or crappy hotel rooms…just the sweet comfort of your own couch. Here’s how it works, artists and bands from all over the globe record a video performance for us from their living rooms, kitchens, porches, bathrooms, you name it…pretty much anywhere but a stage…and we post them during the week of the festival (March 10 – 16, 2013).
Listen, you’re not the only person out there stuck in an office or a classroom or at home while all the supposed “cool kids” are trudging through the crowds of Austin. We are here for you friends! So crack open a beer and a laptop, crank up the volume, and enjoy the couch!

The last day of Couch by is a bittersweet day. On the one had, we would like to sleep. On the other, it's been so much fun getting to know the artists and the fans, not to mention the killer music, that we are actually going to miss the proverbial Couch. We had some heavy hitters post videos today, so let's get right to it!Continue
