This Just In! SXSW Music Festival Announces First Batch of Bands!

Our friends and family at the SXSW Music Conference & Festival have officially unveiled approximately 1300 acts scheduled to play the 2007 event. Check out the lengthy list, on our Web site. For me, highlights include:

120 Days, Lily Allen, Annuals, Aqualung, The Ark, Band of Bees, Martina Topley Bird, Bloc Party, The Dears, Devin the Dude, The Early Years, Evermore, The Faint, The Frames, Girl Talk, The Good The Bad and the Queen, Taylor Hicks, The High Dials, Jandek, Junior Senior, Kenna, The Long Winters, Midlake, Midnight Movies, Amy Millan, Mogwai, Thurston Moore, The M’s, The Pipettes, Emma Pollock, The Ponys, RJD2, The Sammies, Spoon, The Stooges, Richard Swift, Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter, Chad VanGaalen, Viva Voce, West Indian Girl, Amy Winehouse…

And that doesn’t even include the wonderful acts yet to be announced, or that I don’t recognize and will fall in love with between now and SXSW time. Of course, for me, I’ll be lucky if I see two of the aformentioned acts while running around working. But, hey, have fun for us!
