Top ten tweets from Westword Music Showcase, aka #wms11

You can't be everywhere at once, especially during events like Saturday's Westword Music Showcase, with more than a dozen venues across a few blocks in the Golden Triangle. Thankfully, we've got Twitter to read about people complaining and dancing and high-fiving across the festival, which is truly the best use of Twitter at any large-scale event that a cross section of the public attends. Here are some of the more memorable Twitter status updates from Westword Music Showcase 2011. (View a slideshow from Westword Music Showcase.)
