With the schedule released, we’re now focusing on day parties, band profiles, and other related SXSW links.
We’ve heard that SXSW is not releasing an official torrent this year. But that doesn’t stop the will of the people! Click here for a torrent that someone has put together featuring music from the 2008 SXSW Music Festival.
Besides hosting two official evening SXSW shows, NPR is also doing a day party:
As its third event, NPR Music is hosting a live daytime concert on March 13 from the Austin venue The Parish. The show kicks off at 12:30PM (CT) with a largely international bill: The Shout Out Louds and Jens Lekman, both from Sweden; British singer Adele; and stateside artists Yeasayer and Bon Iver. At 4:00PM (CT), celebrated indie rock band Vampire Weekend will take the stage, performing tracks from its debut self-titled release.
