SXSW '09 : Back-Track and Update

We know that SXSW is still months away, but we can't help but get in on the speculation. There have been a handful of bands to be confirmed by SXSW and a multitude of others who have listed their appearances at SXSW on their personal websites or otherwise and we have to say, nothing has amazed as of yet, but there are a few proverbial rays-of-sunshine we thought we should mention. As we already pointed out, St. Vincent and Beach House have been confirmed by the festival, and now we have seen (unofficial) lists with acts like Flosstradamus, Dirty Projectors, and Black Lips to name a few. At this point, the lists are mostly comprised of no-name acts, but hey, some people love going to anything at SXSW in hopes of finding "the next big thing". Good luck! 

Anyway, as always, we will keep you posted with all the updates and speculation. 

--------------------------------------
Ha! It seems like we timed this post right, because SXSW just updated with some new bands, like: Explosions in the Sky, Kid Sister, Peter Bjorn & John, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Mika Miko, and Akron/Family. We're getting kind of pumped on these latest announcements. Peep the other officials here
