With four weeks to go until SXSW kicks off, it’s time to settle in and explore the music, with help from our good friends over at Operation Every Band. So, over to Kevin!
Welcome back to another year of cream-of-the-crop picks from Operation Every Band, sharing our favorites with our friends at SXSW Baby! (ooh, snap! – Ewan). This year’s batch is as good as any, avoiding too many top-draw names to focus on the best of what’s next for the independent and mainstream realms.
Grammys’ highlights Sam Smith and Hozier were relative unknowns gigging around Austin last March, taking only a few months to go from ‘new faces’ to ‘mega-stardom.’ Who will play that role this year? Check out the artists that have the OEB Team buzzing and get on-board by clicking through the site, the spreadsheet and our lovable Donation Packages for anyone looking for a immersive guide to who to see, when to see them and where to go see them next.
This week, Circa Waves, Emmy the Great, Fyfe, Mick Jenkins, and Huntar.
