The explosion of sound that is South by Southwest Music is almost here. 1700 bands descending on the Texan city to play their hearts out over five days. I’ll be there looking for new bands, meeting some old friends, and seeing what I can hear. But in the meantime, the first of four SXSW shows with some of the bands that I think are going to have a great year – and a great SXSW!
