St Paul and the Broken Bones
You don't have to know a single song from the album to have fun watching this band. I immediately bought their album after I saw them live. I love the lead singers voice.
PS...They are coming back in April for the Old Settlers Music Festival.
Birds of Tokyo
AThis group sells out stadiums in Australia. I had listened to their song 'Lanterns' prior to seeing them at SXSW...but seeing them live made all the difference. Listen to the song a few times...it becomes addicting.
Jack Antonoff of Fun has a new project called Bleachers. Maybe it is because I love the band Fun...or maybe it is because I love Jack's girlfriend (Girls creator Lena Dunham) but I dig this band.
I read about this band from Peter Blackstock at the Statesman. This particular video is from 2012, but oh so good.
A nice, cute boy sent me this video last spring and I kind of fell in love with Vance Joy. Great summer song and super cool music video.
A few other bands I didn't get to see, but heard a lot about.
