Every year, thousands of bands descend on Austin for a hurricane of live music—we call it SXSW. How do you make sense of it all? You need a list. On this week’s edition of the Austin Music Experience, we’ve got a mix of picks—some artists we think deserve your attention at SXSW 2014. And they range from all over the spectrum—hip-hop and folk to indie rock and “desert blues.” Plus, we get help from some music experts from the Austin-American Statesman, the Austin Chronicle, and our home station KUTX. No wristbands or platinum badges needed—it’s “The List: SXSW 2014.” Join us Friday at noon and again at 11 on KUTX 98.9, Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 7pm on KUT 90.5, or anytime in the player below.
Below, we’ve got all our picks, plus links to their SXSW schedules.
