    SXSW has their artist list up and for some they have mp3's. Those of you looking for some new music might want to check it out. Thought I would share.

    I know why SXSW does it, but I wish other music festivals would do this as well. I would love to see the New Orleans JazzFest do it.

    Here's the link.

    As per usual, I recommend people listen to The Builders and the Butchers, a really amazing Portland funeral folk band. Especially if you like folks like Tom Waits.

    SEX/VID is playing that week, as are FUCKED UP, AN ALBATROSS, MIKA MIKO, NO AGE and a toooooon more good bands that will be promptly ignored by the media swarm covering this hype carnival.

    To be fair, No Age have been strongly tipped over here in the UK so I expect they'll get good coverage out of SXSW.

    thats true, i forget that a lot of great bands are ignored here but appreciated abroad. i get to see NO AGE twice in the next three weeks, so im pretty psyched overall. they were great when i saw them last year with MIKA MIKO as well.

    wow, i just looked at the list of "official" bands (most of the bands i like that go to austin that week just play non-related house shows) and there are so many, jesus. i would have to be on speed to be able to see everyone. AND i only made it to the letter "d" on the list....

    i cant believe the line up for the "don't mess with texas 2" show; the breeders, municipal waste, no age, fucked up, pissed jeans, nofx, a bunch of good comedians and like another 25 bands. wowza.

    I can't wait to go this year. The ticket was expensive, but everytime I visit the lineup page I see 10 more bands I can't wait to check out.

    On that note...have you seen just the Austin lineup? Austin bands kick the pants out of most the other ones this year. That made me smile from ear to ear :D

    you better hit up some of the houses in austin or a bridge show. i cant be there, so i just encourage everyone to go to the shows i wish i could see. ive never been able to make it to a bridge show, but it sounds amazing from everyone ive talked to.
