SXSW News and Rumors: Round 1

Admittedly, I've been a tad bit lazy since 2008 started, but not any longer! Its shaping up to be one hell of a year and SXSW is going to be a huge part of what makes it awesome for us, and hopefully you too. I've been keeping up with the rumor mill for a while now and I thought it was about time to collect some of that information and put it here, for our loyal readers (much like yourself, right?)! There's a lot of information concerning acts performing at SXSW out there, but I have collected info on ones that you will probably enjoy, so here's that list (bear in mind that some of these may be confirmed and some may not, but all seem plausible): 

Stuff looks good thus far, but expect it to pick up mid-February. We get exceedingly more excited as the days go by, and you can expect us to be covering each new development as it happens. Stay tuned folks!
