SXSW 2012

If you’ve been bored this March, you really have no one to blame but yourself.  And if you’re into music, film, or all things tech, all you had to do was head to Austin for the annual South by Southwest festival.  While it has changed a little since I was a student kicking around 6th St. in the mid 90’s, it is the place to be for live entertainment this month.  Of course, Austin has a pretty good claim on that title every month.

Unless you’re a real music and film afficionado, it can be tough to keep up with all of the different bands hitting the stage there.  Esquire put together their annual slide show of the 30 Must Hear SXSW Artists (29 if you take out Bruce Springsteen), complete with a song from each.  I’m not saying it’s comprehensive, but its a start.

Austin is a great town, hopping with bars and college chics.  If you’re looking for a bros trip you can’t go wrong here any time of year.  SXSW just puts it over the top.

If you missed it this year, be sure to drop it on the calendar for next year.
