Welcome, music nerds. Once a year, Austin, Texas, turns into a hipster Mardi Gras paradise for nearly an entire week during the music portion of SXSW. This year, RedEye made the 20-plus-hour road trip to check it out. Here are a few things we noticed along the way. TUESDAY 3/13 11:00 a.m. Everyone at SXSW looks like they're in a band. Everyone. --Ernest Wilkins The first celebrity sighting of the trip? MTV VJ (they still have those, yeah?) Damien Fahey.

Peyton Manning's Forehead. Bernie & The Kosars. Tikki the Barbarian. No, they're not NFL tribute bands. They are fantasy football names. A clever fantasy football team name is a work of art. And we want to see what RedEye readers have come up with. Send us a screenshot--we repeat SCREENSHOT--of your team's name to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to @redeyesportsguy . We'll create a gallery and include the best names in a future issue of the newspaper. Are you ready for some fantasy football?
