This time of year, more than 100,000 souls descend upon Austin, Texas, for SXSW for a certain combination of music, film, computers, comedy, beer, and tacos. Sure, those things are fun, but you know what's more fun (or at least more emotionally resonant)? Friday Night Lights! And Austin is its home. (Well, its real home, as that's where they shot -- Dillon, Texas, is sadly only a fictional place in our full hearts.) So if you're going to SXSW this year, why not skip a day of cool bands and cool beer and instead take a life-affirming tour of Friday Night Lights locations? Below is an interactive map and list of key shooting locations. Have fun, guys. Clear eyes, full gas tank, can't lose.
