Dave Grohl Will Be The Keynote Speaker At SXSW Because DUH, He's Dave Freakin' Grohl

An admission: I had no idea that SXSW had a keynote speaker until reading this post about how Dave Grohl has been selected to deliver the keynote address at the next one.

The South By Southwest Music and Media Conference and Festival proudly announces Dave Grohl as keynote speaker for the 2013 event. The keynote will take place on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at the Austin Convention Center, the hub of SXSW Music events.

The Dave Grohl keynote will be open to Music and Platinum registrants and registered showcasing artists. SXSW 2013, the world’s leading music industry event, offers attendees the opportunity to explore the future of the music industry during the day at panels, talks, the Trade Show, Music Gear Expo and other conference activities at the Austin Convention Center. At night, the absolute best mix of musical performances from over 2,000 regional, national and international acts will take place at the nighttime music festival. Altogether, SXSW presents unmatched networking opportunities, career-building conference programming and over 100 stages of music for showcasing bands and conference attendees. SXSW Music takes place Tuesday, March 12 – Sunday, March 17, 2013 in Austin, Texas. Conference registrations and hotel requests are now being accepted.

I’m sure this will be the best keynote speech in SXSW history because DUH how could it not be? And now that I think about it, how is Dave Grohl not the guy who delivers ALL of the keynote speeches?
