This will be my first year at SXSW (hence the n00b breakfast taco above). Here are some acts in addition to the ones Sam posted below that I’m excited about seeing in Austin (and yes, I know one of these acts is a French mp3 blog; i’m still excited about seeing themómaybe they’ll play blog house!):

Annie (Bergen NORWAY)
The Big Sleep (Brooklyn NY)
The Bloody Beetroots (Bassano del Grappa ITALY)
Cadence Weapon (Edmonton AB)
Chrome Hoof (London UK)
Cut Copy (Melbourne AUSTRALIA)
Dalek (Newark NJ)
Does It Offend You, Yeah? (Reading UK)
Duchess Says (Montreal QC)
Ecstatic Sunshine (Baltimore MD)
El-P (Brooklyn NY)
Fluokids (Paris FRANCE)
Fucked Up (Toronto ON)
Genghis Tron (New York NY) 

Ghislain Poirier (Montreal QC)
Kim Hiorthoy (Oslo NORWAY)
The Hood Internet (Chicago IL)
How’s Your News (Boston MA)
Joan of Arc (Chicago IL)
Juiceboxxx (Detroit MI)
The Kills (London UK)
Le Loup (Washington DC)
Lindstrom (Oslo NORWAY)
Mahjongg (Chicago IL)
Peter Moren (Stockholm SWEDEN)
N.E.R.D. (Virginia Beach VA)
No Kids (Vancouver BC)
Old Time Relijun (Portland OR)
Parts & Labor (Brooklyn NY)
Pissed Jeans (Allentown PA)
Sightings (Brooklyn NY)
Simian Mobile Disco (London UK)
The Slits (London UK)
Thee Oh Sees (San Francisco CA)
White Mice (Providence RI)
WHY? (Oakland CA)

Also: is “Kevin Shields (Midcity CA)” the Kevin Shields, from MBV, and if so what is he doing in Midcity CA? And, did you know there’s already a band called “You and Me and Everyone We Know”? We can only hope they’re better than The Devil Wears Prada.

That taco is embarrassing. Austin tacos will change your life.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that it's the noise band called Kevin Shields and not actually Kevin Shields from MBV.

Also, please do try and catch Cadence Weapon. His new record is the shit and he is a great live presence. He's also opening for Born Ruffians at the High Dive on March 26th for those people who aren't making the Austin trek.

True. I omitted a lot of stuff that I know I'll be seeing around here before or after, and Cadence Weapon and Born Ruffians are both definitely on that list (along with Crystal Castles).

Ghengis Tron is from Philly. Their new stuff is shaping up to be mind blowing.

Trent, I think they're Tater Tots (or something very like). That is such a good idea for a taco!

@5 - agreed. Genghis Tron rulz.

Here's a list of number of bands performing at SXSW by city. Seattle is #10 out of around 225 cities.

The Slits? Original lineup Slits? Ari Up and Palmolive? Ooh, I wonder if they're horrible now. They were the best of the punk primitives.

Slits played El Corazon in 2006 or 2007. They were all right, but not nearly as wild as the Cut-era incarnation (no real surprise there). They really could've used Budgie.
