The People To Get Excited About If You're Going To SXSW But Would Like Anyway Even If You Weren't Going Mix
Part 2 of 2

You're probably wondering what the hell all those letters mean. Kicking off South By Southwest coverage this year is a massive mix for a massive fest. There's been quite a bit of material I could have covered before the fest officially goes down, and the operative phrase there is "could have." Undoubtedly, it's a gargantuan amount, and the time I've had lately has been miniscule...and I've been lazy (I haven't even made my schedule yet!). When situations like this arise, a blogger's best friend, mix, comes into play, and so I present this. Returning from last year is 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 officially began when the clock struck midnight earlier this morning! For those of you going, I tip my hat and remind you to prepare for a crazy, crazy, crazy time...

Anon - Oh man there's A LOT of people not on this list that I wish I put up, but these two parts really are the product of me quickly skimming (so many pages!) the artist roster.

The goal is, if they don't get mention here, they'll at least get coverage when I catch them later at some sort of event.

I don't remember what song I was searching for on elbo.ws but I was redirected to this blog and ended up downloading all the mp3s, and I really appreciated the attached album art or pictures of the band. Thanks!
