The SXSW Music team have released the second batch of performers who will be getting an official showcase at SXSW Music 2014. As usual it’s headlined by a ‘known name’ (in this case it’s Gary Numan) but a quick look down the list brings up some names that are both familiar to SXSW’ers, and other names that are getting me excited for March already.
Names like the always reliable Sarah Jaffe, the delightful noise of Scars on 45, and the rapidly turning into a SXSW institution set from We Were Promised Jetpacks are in the mix. You can read the full list of announced showcases here on the SXSW main site.
And if the names don’t mean that much to you, with the announcements under way its time for Friend of The Baby! Kevin McStravick and his team to (a) promise to listen to every band playing at SXSW and (b) review them at Operation Every Band. Which is already rolling for the year!
