If you are into music, chances are you have probably heard of SXSW. It is a glorious time of year when the music industry descends upon Austin. For older artists, it is a great way to connect with younger, festival-going generations, labels, and your fellow artists. For up-and-coming artists, SXSW provides an outlet to share their music to all who are within earshot.
Over the years, the SXSW has drastically affected countless acts, making it a music-industry-mecca, of sorts.
Check back this week for a post of video highlights and to see interviews with artists, including Phantogram, Miami Horror, Mas Ysa, Royal Canoe, Milagres, Classixx, Speak, UME, and many more.
