Happy New Years, SXSW Baby‘ers!
Each week, I’ll be sharing a few top shelf picks for SXSW Baby! as well as sharing general insight on the project itself. To kick things off, it is worth mentioning that the overall quality of the acts so far for 2013 is by far the best it has ever been. I imagine the cuts have gotten tougher with the growing importance of SXSW for burgeoning artists, but it just makes the Conference that much more special for everyone given the opportunity to perform.
We rate on a scale of one to ten at Operation Every Band, and consistently there are more bands worth mentioning (those that score ‘five’ or above) than not. We’re about ten weeks away from SXSW, so get your listening in early by following OEB at Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook or the old fashioned way for multi-day posts up until the conference.
And if that’s too much music in your busy life, we’ll bring you the weekly highlights here on The Baby!
