SXSW Picks – 3/20


We are nearing the end of the festival. We are choosing our picks for today Friday – 3/20 although the festival continues through the weekend. The schedules for Sat/Sun can be found here. By far the best part of today are the day shows – it’s very possible the majority of the best names played last night (Friday also seems heavy hip/hop electronic/DJ for the evening showcases).

We highlight a few great bands and less well known for the evening shows. Once again clicking on their name takes you to their website or facebook page. If we have previously covered them, we have included a link as well.
