SXSW Music starts in a month – Broken Social Scene Tomorrow

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

SXSW RSVP season has begun and the bands have pretty much been announced minus the big boy secret shows (Radiohead?). Wristbands are still on-sale here for $165, definitely the best deal is you’re going for several days.  This is the first year I will have a badge and am extremely excited, this will be just my second year of volunteering for the film portion of SXSW and its a great way to get a free badge or wristband before the music begins on Wednesday.  The SXSW office is located at 400 Bowie and if you stop by you may still be able to get into the program.  The current band list is here, it’s a bitch to go thru but worth it.

Broken Social Scene club show at La Zona Rosa tomorrow

Also tickets went on sale today for Marina and the Diamonds at Antone’s for only $13 presale code is familyjewels tickets can be found here.   I’ve attached my favorite remix of hers by Penguin Prison.

Ellie Goulding broke out in a big way last year with her debut full length Lights, her pop has been remixed by just about every producer in existence.  The latest from dubstep crossover Bassnectar is number one on the Hype Machine.   Hype Machine if you haven’t checked it out before is the best fucking thing since Napster.  Ellie is on her way to Austin from her home across the pond for a little thing called SXSW, she is an absolute must see if you can get in to her shows.  Her schedule has her in town all week so hopefully there will be multiple showcases.   I have posted a few remixes of her hits Starry Eyed and Lights.  In honor of her angelic voice posted is also a clip from a movie that changed my life and is the best movie to never be released on DVD.  Listen up and bust out your old Mongoose.
