Bands to look for at SXSW 2013

65dosoctshef15

Ahoy there! We are a broke, skint and demoralised, so we won’t make it to SXSW 2013 in Austin, home to the second best chili con carne I’ve had in my life (1st was in Arkansas, thanks for asking).

It matters not, here’s a list of bands we heartily recommend you do check at the festival. Why 42? Because I miss Douglas Adams, that’s why. Don’t forget to take a towel. All bands organised by date. Venues were correct at time of printing (I nicked the info from the official SXSW page).
