Don't be bummed if you can't attend this year's SXSW in Austin, Texas. Sure, it's become a massive event full of cool films and rockin' bands, but it isn't the only festival to honor both mediums. There are lesser-known music-movie alternatives where you can get your fill.
Check out our three picks for music and film fests after the jump.
This year marks the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, a fact you might have been made aware of in the flurry of pre-Inauguration coverage but is worth mentioning again in light of the Library of Congress's exhibition "With Malice Toward None." Opening on Lincoln's birthday in Washington this year, the groundbreaking collection moves west to Sacramento.
Opening at the California Museum June 24, "With Malice Toward None," taking its title from Lincoln's second inaugural address (given less than a month before his assassination) includes personal documents including the Bible he (and Barack Obama) were sworn in on, old school books and his crib notes from the Lincoln-Douglas debates which first introduced him as a political up-and-comer.
