SXSW '09 Official Showcases

The SXSW official showcase schedule has been posted. I skimmed over it quick and these are some of bands that stood out to me. Obviously many of these bands are going to be playing several additional "unofficial" showcases, but that it for you to figure out.

First, these are the band that will/would be TOP priorities for me if I go/was going:

Future of the Left - Aces Lounge - Fri 3/20 9:00pm
Russian Futurists - Karma Lounge - Fri 3/30 1:00am
The Rural Alberta Advantage - Central Pres Church - Thurs 3/19 7:45pm
The Wrens - Prague - Thurs 3/19 TBA
Let's Wrestle - Wave Rooftop - Thurs 3/19 11:00pm
WAVVES - The Music Gym Patio - Thurs 3/19 12:00am
The Coast - Lamberts - Sat 3/12 11:00pm
The Secret Life of Sofia - St David's Church - Sat 3/21 9:00pm


These are notables. Big name/buzz bands.

Voxtrot - Volume - Wed 3/18 11:00pm
Department of Eagles - Central Pres Church - Wed 3/18 10:00pm
Grizzly Bear - Central Pres Church - Thurs 3/19 8:30pm
Here We Go Magic - Club 115 - Thurs 3/19 1:00am
Okkervil River - The Parish - Fri 3/20 1:00am
Matt & Kim - Opal Divine's - Thurs 3/19 TBA
The Thermals - Red Eyed Fly - Thurs 3/19 TBA
Silversun Pickup - Antone's - Sat 3/21 TBA
The Rosebuds - The Parish - Sat 3/21 TBA


Two NY bands that I highly recommend:

The Cloud Room - Cedar Door - Wed 3/18 TBA
Bell - Club de Ville - Wed 3/18 TBA


Two showcases, other than the AFTER THE JUMP SHOWCASE, which i have already posted about, stood out as being all around great:

MOKB show - Radio Room - Wed 3/18
Slumberland/Cakeshop show - Emo's Jr - Fri 3/20
