SXSW is just a few short weeks away, and the performance schedule has finally been officially released via the event's website. Yes, it is only the "official" line-up, and there are sure to be tons of "unofficial" parties announced in the next few weeks, but it's nice to get a few confirmations to add to our schedule.
While the Film festival starts earlier in the week, the musical acts will start on Wednesday, March 18 and run through Sunday the 22. With artists like Phosphorescent, The Bronx, A-Trak, and The Decemberists, Black Lips, Grizzly Bear and blog-boy Wavves confirmed to perform along an ever-increasing line-up of huge acts like Devo or the oft-rumored Metallica, it's sure to be the gaudy, drunken experience we've all come to expect.
Batten down the hatches Austin, the world is coming to tear shit up. You can see the full line-up here.
