My thanks to Rannie and MJ, who rescued me from an hour-long registration line and fast-tracked me so that they could have me perform the opening and closing number for their panel discussion titled How to Rawk SxSW, a guide for first-timers that show them how to make the most of their South by Southwest experience. After all these years, the accordion still opens all kinds of doors.
