The People to Get Excited About if You're Going to SXSW But Would Like Anyway Even if You Weren't Going Mix

You're probably wondering what the hell all those letters mean. Considering the almighty list for SXSW was released a few weeks ago, there's been quite a bit of material that I could have covered. Operative phrase there being "could have." Undoubtedly, it's a gargantuan amount and the time I've had lately has been minuscule. All right! I've been lazy. Regardless, when situations like this arise, a blogger's best friend, mix, comes into play. So, I present the "People to Get Excited About if You're Going to SXSW But Would Like Anyway Even if You Weren't Going" Mix - the product of me quickly skimming through that list of artists and jotting down names that had me getting all giddy. SXSW Music starts this Wednesday kiddos! How the hell did that happen? Those of you attending, I tip my hat and remind you to prepare for a crazy, crazy time...
