Posted by RaHa | November 25, 2009 10:56 PM

Goober and the Peas? Wow, that's actually pretty cool.

Posted by Anonymous | November 25, 2009 11:08 PM

Bizarre initial lineup. We Are Scientists?

The View? Guess that kid's criminal history for drugs has been expunged and he'll get a visa?

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 12:08 AM

not a single "crystal" band????

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 4:14 AM

the best thing about sxsw is the numerous snack wagons selling fresh hummus.

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 4:28 AM

David Bowie?

I always go for the free shows, and as much free beer i can get my hands on, being im not 21 yet hahah, yea sxsw is great, last year i saw dirty projectors twice in one day!, department of eagles, no age, wavves, mika miko, explosions in the sky, beach house and all fo free, i just walk up in it. It was sweet! I suggest riding a bike around town. I hope better bands show up though,

Posted by usb sticks | November 26, 2009 7:48 AM

NO - BANG BANG ECHE??? Fuck I hope they play, they were by far the biggest surprise of this year. Amazing stuff.

Posted by Tofurky | November 26, 2009 8:41 AM

Meh to every single one of these bands. Every single one.

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 10:44 AM

All of the "Crystal" bands are now too big to bother with something as piddling as SXSW.

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 10:56 AM

is a badge necessary to get in to the best shows, or is a badge a waste of money?

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 11:45 AM

The Crystal MEHthod is listed for all those Crystal fanatics.

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 11:48 AM

I think its a deliberate weak release to bring down #s and poseurs

Posted by Anonymous | November 26, 2009 3:49 PM

"We Are Scientists"? "We are Wolves"? I wish WE! ARE! YOUR FRIENDS! were playing instead!

They need to get some more Australian bands. Van She, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun, Ladyhawke, PNAU, Midnight Juggernauts.... If they get any of these or others I would flip.

Houses and cars are not cheap and not everybody can buy it. But, business loans are created to support different people in such kind of hard situations.
