200+ Reasons We Can’t Wait for SXSW 2010!

Everyone has been talking about the showcasing bands announced yesterday by SXSW. For your convenience, Do512 has decided to dish out the updated list. All currently announced bands are named, including yesterday’s additions in bold. It’s no surprise that SXSW is bringing in a ton of talent this Spring, as well as showcasing local favorites like Ume and Speak. Before we get to the big list, here is some info on a few must-hear out-of-towners that we are particularly excited about:

We were stoked to find out US Royalty is coming back to SXSW this year. Hailing from Washington DC, this Americana (kinda pop) rock band has a dedicated following in the Northeast that is rapidly stretching South. Since last year’s epic performance, Austin has been craving another rockin’ dance party from US Royalty. Check out the group’s songs “Every Summer” and “Rats” and get ready to sing/dance along in March!

Another artist Austinites can’t wait to see roll back into town is Rosi Golan – she blew the crowd away as the opener for William Fitzsimmons at Stubb’s a while back. This adorable little New Yorker has a Texas-sized talent for songwriting and performing. Definitely check out her acoustic folk tunes (they’ll get ya hooked), and you will be anxiously waiting to see her live at SXSW 2010!

Did you see Fanfarlo last week at The Independent? If not, you missed out on an excellent show. Lucky for you, the 5-piece British pop-folk band is stopping back in Austin for SXSW! Fanfarlo‘s performances are packed with energy and great tunes – not to mention the heart-melting stage presence of every band member. You can tell they’re all having the times of their lives on stage, and that kind of fun is quite contagious for audience members like you and me.
