Austin Band Crush: Roundup of Boston bands at SXSW

March 14, 2011

Looks like Boston will be well represented at South By Southwest this year, so we figured we’d put together a list of as many of the Boston bands’ shows as we could find. There are some real doozies from the look of things – Kingsley Flood has a bunch of shows, DOM is gonna be all over the place, our buddies over at the Weekly Dig and the RSL both have showcases… I could go on and on, but this thing is already pretty damn long. I linked to as many of the event pages as I could dig up, so make sure you check those for set times and additional info, and if I missed anything, feel free to let me know in the comments; I’ll get it added as soon as I can. We also have a Facebook event page set up, so if you’re headed to Austin let us know!
