Staff Infection: SXSW 2012
Green Light Go is gearing up to get out of the snow and head down to the great city of Austin to rub elbows with some of the most noteworthy bands of 2012. With hundreds of live performances to choose from, South By Southwest presents a smorgasboard of amazing artists, but unless you've packed your trusty teleporter as a carry-on, part of the problem is trying to decide which bands to see.
Here is my short list of must-see SXSW artists:
1. Cloud Nothings - "Stay Useless"
2. The Spinto Band - "Oh Mandy"
3. Howler - "Back of Your Neck"
4. The Wedding Present - "Dare"
5. Lucero - "Last Night in Town"
6. Bleached - "Think of You"
7. Built To Spill - "Liar"
8. Heartless Bastards - "Parted Ways"
9. Metric - "Stadium Love"
10. Horse Feathers - "Bonnet of Briars"

Every week a different Green Light Go staff member will write about what bands have infected their ears for the week and give you an opportunity to hear it for yourself.
