SXSW 2005: Lost in Austin

Thinking about next month's Noise Pop Festival got me thinking even more about the South by Southwest music festival, which takes place in Austin this March. Every year, I take time off and head down to Austin with friends for a week of pure musical indulgence. It's a great way to hear great new music and enjoy Texas barbeque and beer; more than 1,000 bands and 30,000 music fans from all over the world converge on Austin to play over the course of 5 days.

The SXSW site site has an abbreviated list of bands already confirmed to play; This playlist includes music from some of the bands making the trek to Austin this year, including The Raveonettes, Ambulance Ltd., The Donnas, Hot Hot Heat, and Billy Idol. Yes, I said Billy Idol. Enjoy the music!

Oh man, I'm jealous. I've been trying to get a group of my friends to head down to the festival each year but have been unsuccessful in pulling it off so far... total music heaven...
