SXSW Preview

Over the last few months, we have been lucky enough to meet such a diverse, talented group of musicians, who have stopped by our place, filmed with us in the streets, or shuffled around their schedules to meet us backstage so that we can capture intimate performances of tunes that we love.  Since we started this as a little blog to help out musicians by offering a place to crash on the nights they toured through Boston, we have grown tremendously, and we hope that our mission to keep bringing you great music by bands that you know–and some that you don’t (and should) keeps growing.

Each year, musicians head down to Austin to the South by Southwest Music and Film Festival to make their mark and widen their audience.  Unfortunately we won’t be making the trip this year, but many of the bands we’ve met over the last few months will, including some fantastic local bands deserving some more exposure.  We hope that we can help them out with that little bit.

And so, here is a roundup of the bands that we’ve recorded that are headed down to the festival in just a few weeks now.  There are sneak peaks at some, already posted songs by others, and early posts of songs that we just recorded with others.  We hope you enjoy the music, and we hope that you can support these amazing artists as they make their next step out into the spotlight.
