A guide to Seattle bands playing SXSW

SXSW in Austin is now less than a month away and nearly everyone seems to be headed down to Texas for the annual event. Except for me. (We will have a team of writers and photographers in Austin reporting on the festival.) The music portion runs from Tuesday, March 15 until Sunday, March 20. I’ve compiled a list of Seattle-based (and close enough) bands playing this year and tried to make it as thorough and exhaustive as I can. This list was compiled through a lot of internet searches, messages from publicists, general queries, etc… As complete as I want to make this, some information could be incomplete or outdated. If you see any omissions or inaccuracies, please e-mail me at chris@anotherrainysaturday.com and I’ll made the necessary additions/corrections/deletions ASAP. I’ll continue to update this list as soon as I can fill in more details (times, etc…). Please be sure to check on RSVP requirements. The list is below, after the jump:
