It is almost time for one of the biggest music and media conferences in the country. SXSW kicks off in Austin, TX on March 12th. This year, 88Nine RadioMilwaukee will be there covering it (well at least Adam and Tarik will be). There will be hundreds of bands and artist performing in Austin. If you are going, you are probably asking yourself, who should I see? Well for the last few years some nice person has putting together a torrent of mp3s from most of the artists performing at SXSW. Volume 1 of this torrent has about 3.4 GB of music. Volume 2 has not been release yet. Volume includes 646 songs, which you can download now.
Just to let you know, I spent all day Sunday going through everyone of the 646 songs (yes, I do not have a life). I picked out 141 artists that might be interesting to see. So starting later today to the beginning of the festival, I will posting 10 of those 141 songs daily. In the meantime, why don't you download the torrent and let me know which of those songs are your favorites.
