SXSW Artists to See 2017.. Part 2

We are 18 days away from getting on planes and into cars and meeting in Austin for SXSW 2017. Anyone who is a regular reader will know that this is like our Christmas. It gives us a chance to see each other again ( We, the writers, are scattered all over the US ) and also, more importantly, to see new bands.

We travel with lists of those we want to see. Sometimes, they are ones, in the past we have worked with, and sometimes they are ones we have never heard of until they are announced. ( We do go through and listen to 95 % of the bands on the announcement lists! )

Today we are showcasing five of the bands we really want to see while we are there, so lets get started!


THIS….is my number one pick for this years SXSW. I refuse to miss them. We have been following their rise for so long now, and haven’t had a chance to see them live.


We can’t get enough of these guys. The love child of two of our favorite bands, The Strokes and Arctic Monkeys.
Cool, laid back psych music is always high on our list.
The lead singers voice reminds me a lot of Ian Curtis, one of my favorite musicians. This band is on several of us girl’s must see list.
It will surprise some of the girls to see Kate Nash on my list, as I generally am not fond of female singers, but I make the exception with her. I love the diversity of her music.

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
