SXSW releases third round of artist announcements for your viewing pleasure

And on the third wave of artist announcements, SXSW released what now amounts to 965 bands booked to play the annual Austin, TX industry drunkfest. And lo, the industry saw that it was good. Bands from around the world! Bands you’ve never heard of! Bands with names so terrible, you WISH you’d never heard of them! Bands you HAVE heard of and are totally freaking out about! Together, in America’s Modern Garden of Eden — the swirling mass of humanity, loud music, and late night pizza places known as 6th Street — the pop-punk band would grab tacos next to the ethereal noisewave quintet, and behold, it was all totally, totally good.

So yeah, obviously they’re adding other bands EVERY DAY! But for the moment, you can revel in the wonder of seeing Best Coast, Douglas Dare, Frog Eyes, Jaill, Jorma Kaukonen, Kelela, Morgan Heritage, Palma Violets, Prince Rama, The Shrine, Son Lux, Yo Gotti, and a whole host of other bands presented in alphabetical order. You can get the whole list here.
