SXSW March Madness 64-band breakdown

Share/Bookmark
Posted by teibs On March - 11 - 2010
sxsw10@ZackTeibloom Here’s the deal. SXSW is beyond overwhelming. 2,000+ bands and it’s hard to make sense of it. Festival Crashers is going to try to make it a little more manageable. In the spirit of March Madness, we’re going to give you 64 (plus a play in game) bands to see at south by. This is a rough draft of the list. I’m still going through and ranking and adding and subtracting. Before we put the bracket together and start voting these bands off, I’d love for you to say who should and shouldn’t be on this list and let us know who’s ranked too high or low. In the next few days we’ll quickly vote off bands and let you vote for who you need to see so you at least can have some semblance of a game plan. Who’s missing? Who shouldn’t be here? (The # next to them is their tentative seeding)
  1. Muse (Not officially announced, likely Friday or Saturday @ Stubbs)

    Scissor Sisters should be higher on the list. Muse is in the right spot though :)

    […] kinda had fun in the parking lot. Andy and I talked for about 40 minutes, brainstorming the SXSW 65 and I watched the most random Tae-Kwon-Do class of all time. Seriously, I think someone said […]

  3. BC Said,

    Scissor Sisters should DEFINITELY be higher up! The Beatards should be on the list.

    I think Spoon is too high on the list, granted, I have no interest in seeing them. heh

    See – not the only one who thinks Spoon is too high. And couldn’t agree more with Muse (!!!at Stubbs!!!) – if y’all hear rumors of when they’re going to show, ‘would love to know – trying to fit that in between Gibbard & Fat Mike.

  5. Kelly Said,

    I think Avi Buffalo should be on the list for sure!
