We will soon have a list of hundreds more bands who have announced that they will be in Austin for the party of the year, taking place March 18-22. Also coming soon is a helpful way to keep track of all the bands you want to see, which will include each show they have planned for the festival, be it an official showcase, day party, after party, or anything else.
For now, instead of pasting another long list of names here on the blog, check out this page on Do512 for a big list of SXSW bands. That page is filled with MySpace and YouTube links for most of the bands so you can find out more about them. You can also take a look at this list, which is a bit longer and includes a bunch rumored acts, but does not include links to each artist's website.
Much more to come. Get in touch with me if you have any SXSW news I should know about.
