Playlist: Local Bands to Catch at SXSW 2016

Meet some of our fave Austin-based bands in preparation for festival season!

It seems impossible that we could be talking about SXSW already… Wasn’t it just yesterday that we were hosting our very first music showcase, and reuniting with good friends like Zella Day and Family and Friends? Regardless, I’m thrilled that it’s just a little over a month away. Now that I live in Austin, SXSW is an opportunity to see old friends in town for the festival, and celebrate the kickoff of festival season – a long, exhausting yet exhilarating season that lasts all the way until Fun Fun Fun Fest in November. For people visiting, it’s also a great opportunity to experience some of the music that we here in Austin get to see quite frequently – the local bands who play on a regular basis and keep the city’s music scene thriving. To help you out, I’ve put together a playlist of some of the local bands who will perform during SXSW – if you’re in town, try to check them out and support local artists!
