So Much for SXSW

Having too many awesome things to check out during SXSW is a positive, but it sure feels like torture trying to narrow it all down into one schedule. So instead of trying to pick from all of the good parties, I looked and the list of bands coming to town, picked the ones I want to see, and found out when/where they'll be. And tomorrow or the next day I'm going to try and breakdown the official showcases that look like fun. Thanks to Showlist for much of the copyable/pasteable info's.

As far as pre-south-by goes, tonight night Beach House and Transmography are both providing entertainment at Emo's. (I Blog Fresh-ed Transmography just the other day.)

is dedicated to the inaugural Psych Fest with Black Angels, Strange Boys & more, which I told you about.
