[hot off the press] SXSW 2012

SXSW is right around the corner (March 9 – 18) and the music schedule is is now live.

Other than CMJ, this is by far the best music festival in the US.  I don’t have the time and/or patience to list the hundreds of bands announced to play, but some of my favorites include: Alabama Shakes, Built to Spill, The Magnetic Fields, Talib Kweli, The Drums, Bear In Heaven, Deerhoof, The War on Drugs, Miniature Tigers, SBTRKT, Best Coast, M. Ward, Youth Lagoon, Tennis, Dan Deacon, Lana Del Rey, The Ting Tings, YACHT, Band of Skulls, White Rabbits, Freelance Whales, and Sharon Van Etten.
