, Weekend Jukebox #6: SXSW artists

On Monday, I’ll be heading towards independent music heaven in Austin, Texas where roughly 1800 bands will be playing at the SXSW Festival both officially and unofficially. The last few weeks and the weekend has and will be spent frantically RSVP’ing to parties, organising a schedule and listening to artists playing. I cannot frickin’ wait..

The SXSW website has an MP3 from nearly every band officially playing and I’m going to draw from the list to show off who I’m looking forward to seeing over the next week. The ten artists I’m most looking forward to right now are (subject to change, obviously): Devo, King Khan and the Shrines, Solid Gold, Here We Go Magic, Amanda Blank, Magic Wands, Little Boots, Casiokids, Grizzly Bear and StarFucker.

There’s also the Irish showcases which I’ll be covering for Day and Night (updated today). I’ll be posting a blog on more SXSW stuff before Monday as well as two podcasts, so for now, enjoy the songs. Also, piece on MP3 blogs by Richard Brophy with quotes from me in today’s Irish Times.
