The music portion of South by Southwest 2012 runs March 13-18th. If that seems like a long ways away, then try booking a hotel room in Austin right now. Really, just go ahead and try.
To complicate your search (and add even more incentive), today the festival revealed an early peak at some of the 2,000+ acts who will play the city’s venues, dive bars, abandoned lots, and pizza shops.
Notables acts include Against Me!, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Cloud Nothings, Thee Oh Sees, VHS or Beta, Yukon Blonde, and Class Actress, while Library Voices, Com Truise, Yuksek, SPEAK, Shout Out Out Out Out, Parlovr, The Men, Jonquil, Spectrals, The Ettes, Chelsea Wolfe, and ANR are among the other highlights.
