Not just a recording of the bands, but the actual musicians.And that’s how, just a few months ago, the concept of Couvapalooza was born.“As soon as we got home from the festival, we thought: ‘How can we pull these bands together here?’” Hahn-Troxler said. “That was late March, and we’ve been going like gangbusters ever since.”Troxler is a financial planner who works with musicians and other clients across the country. This is the second year he’s had a booth with his wife at South by Southwest.last_img read more
