Homegrown. Handpicked. SXSW 2014.

This is our town. These are our picks.

Austin loves live music.

Austin bands play at the airport and even our grocery stores. Not to mention more than 250 venues, countless festivals, the longest running music show on TV and a little thing called SXSW.

And we aren’t a one-genre town. We love rock and bluegrass and jazz and folk and punk and hip-hop and whatever else our neighbors play.

The only trouble in this little slice of music paradise is figuring out which bands to check out first.

But don’t worry—GSD&M has your back. Here are our local picks for SXSW 2014.

The Black Angels

Holiday Mountain

Shakey Graves

The Succulents

Whiskey Shivers

Not in the Face

The Black and White Years

Wild Child
