It’s always interesting to see how various lists of up and coming musicians match up, so if you are keeping track of both the announced showcases for SXSW and where there is cross-over, take a look at the BBC’s Sound of 2013 award. Judged by a panel of music industry types, along with the staff and personalities of the national broadcaster, a number of bands on the ’2013 shortlist are already booked in for an Austin appearance in March 2013.
- Angel Haze (Detroit MI)
- CHVRCHES (Glasgow UK-SCOTLAND)
- Kodaline (Dublin IRELAND)
- Little Green Cars (Dublin IRELAND)
- Palma Violets (London UK-ENGLAND)
- Peace (Birmingham UK-ENGLAND)
- Savages (London UK-ENGLAND)
If you need somewhere to start your own shortlist for SXSW Music, then the SXSW Sound of 2013 mash-up is as good a place as any!
