NX35's 2010 Keynote Speaker: Steve Albini

Just last week, Daniel Rodrigue caught up with NX35 festival organizer Chris Flemmons to see how things were going as preparations for year two of the pre-SXSW fest began.

Today, some news to report on that front: On its festival blog, NX35 has just announced the keynote speaker for its 2010 go-'round: producer, sound engineer, Shellac member, Record Hop fan and highly opinionated music observer Steve Albini.

No date has been set on when his speech will take place, but, either way, it's an exciting first announcement for the fest.

Last year's speaker, you may recall, was comic author and jazz fan Harvey Pekar.
