So you and your pals aren’t among the thousands in Austin this weekend? So what! Yeah, you won’t be able to discover your next favorite band while eating BBQ and sweating in the Texas sunshine. But (almost?) better yet, you can discover your next favorite band from your couch.
Can’t make it to SXSW?
The question is: Are you ready?
With SXSW officially marking the beginning of music festival season, we’ve rounded up a handful of under-the-radar Austin-bound bands who we’re planning to keep an eye—and an ear—on in the coming months.
Summer festival season has been especially good to Brooklyn-based band Swear and Shake.
If you missed their fantastic sets at Governors Ball and SXSW, don’t worry! Check out the Lumineers-esque band’s exclusive video instead.
Plus, you can get to know their super-cool frontwoman Kari Spieler (we love her!).
