SXSW Music Selections :: 1st round

In alphabetical order, I have chosen my first round picks for the SXSW music portion. I know it won’t be possible to see all of these bands plus the many more I will add in the coming weeks.  The complete band list can be viewed here. The genres listed below are fairly broad, but hopefully helpful. I am slowing listening to the 2nd and 3rd round bands and hope to have those up in a few days. Click on the band name to learn more about them. Let me know what you like! Enjoy!
