SXSW isn’t like other music festivals. It brings in some big names and gives you an opportunity to see a ton of your favorite acts all in one fell swoop (swoop!), but it’s more than that. SXSW is a chance to discover new music and catch some emerging bands while they’re still in the early stages of their rise. Be at the right place at the right time and you might just fuck around and catch the next big thing, playing in some intimate setting to a bunch of die-hard music lovers. It’s a beautiful thing.

This year Paper Garden Records has teamed up with  Pigeons & PlanesMy Old Kentucky Blog, and The Wild Honey Pie for a three-day SXSW residency at Uncorked. Each blog has helped co-curate a day. We’re really excited to help out with this and bring together some of our favorite up-and-coming acts like Starlight Girls and Philco Fiction, and we’re equally excited to be a part of Paper Garden Records showcasing their own picks, because they’ve proven time and time again that they have excellent taste.

If you’re going to be at SXSW, RSVP below, get familiar with the bands through the playlist, and check out the set times, etc. Hit page 2 for the official flyer with more links and info.
