Whether you will be Austin, TX for SXSW or not, you’ll want to know about the up and coming artists we’re featuring and check in at our SXSW page to live vicariously through us on our journey.

Last but not least, Jason and I hosted a Soundcloud podcast about the bands we’re featuring. We’re really looking forward to it – if you can’t tell. 🙂
