The 10 bands you HAVE to see at SXSW!

After reviewing the entire 1000+ songs on the SXSW torrent, reading, listening and watching videos.  This our list of the 10 bands you must see while at SXSW.  If you’re not at SXSW, these are the bands that you should be rushing out to see.

Our criteria:  1) Not a one-hit wonder.  They’ve got a 30 to 45 minute set at their disposal that’ll blow you away.

2) Great live band.  Either we’ve seen them personally or the weight of public opinion merits seeing this band live.  Their show at SXSW is going to be an “event”.

3) They’re on the cusp of something bigger.  This may be the last time you can see them in a smaller venue.

In no particular order:

An Horse

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The Duke Spirit

White Lies

The Soft Pack



Ida Maria

The Living Things

Division of Laura Lee

No videos this time.  We’ve done oodles of videos on each of these bands.  Time to get out there and see ’em folks!
