If I were going to SXSW....

I wish I were going to SXSW again...so this post and the next few will likely be dedicated to some SXSW-related things for all of you guys who are hanging or trekking there as we speak! Now, I'm fortunate to live in a city where the majority of bands come through on a fairly regular basis, but there's something special about seeing a band play in a fort, or a backyard, or a rooftop, or a barn, or a killer venue in downtown Austin. So, if you are indeed going, do me a favor and check out some of these bands....

If I were going to SXSW, I would see:
