1300 bands and counting for SXSW Music 2013

The Austin team have released the third batch of showcases for SXSW Music this year, taking the total of announced bands up to 1300, from an expected count of around 2100-2200. I expect there are a lot of bands planning travel and accommodation right now (and some frantic calls to US Embassies around the world to sort out a suitable visa).

You can look through the new bands at the SXSW website, or the full list of names is here.

A quick scan through the new names and I can spot some of my personal favourites, including Camera Obscura and Frightened Rabbit from my Scottish stomping grounds. Can you see any of your favourites?
