Another SXSW, another bender in Austin, another couple hundred new bands ready to plant their flag in the live music capital of the great U.S. of A. This year the mother of all festivals features a seemingly endless schedule of music showcases that would make even the most dedicated concert addict a little dizzy.

So we poured over the sea of e-vites for you, and compiled a list of must-see acts for SXSW 2014, and even created a YouTube playlist for your rock n roll pleasure. Now get out there this March 11th-16th and make us proud, would ya?
