The official schedule for the 14th year of Austin’s South By Southwest (SXSW) festival was finally revealed over the weekend, and we here at XLR8R have compiled a list of those artists worth checking out. Besides the official picks listed below, the festival–which takes place March 14 -18–will see performances by Boris, Burning Star Core, Jesu, Sunburned Hand of Man, Wooden Shjips, and other bands worth braving the hot, sweaty crowds to see perform.
Music lineups aside, another attraction to SXSW 2007 is that the festival will be as “green” as possible this year. Organizers are working in conjunction with Ecology Action of Austin to reduce and recycle waste, as well as obtain generators powered by biodiesel. The SXSW crew have also purchased wind energy credits and donated money for preserving Austin’s arbores. It’s good to know that they’re doing what they can to make sure we have an Earth left for next year’s festivities.
