With SXSW only a month away, we thought we’d talk about a couple of the bands that we’re stoked to see. This year’s lineup is a little different, mostly up-and-coming artists. In 2017, the festival hosted acts like Talib Kweli, At The Drive In, Third Eye Blind and Erykah Badu to name a few. So, since this year is packed with a lot of bands that you arguably have never heard of before (calm down, hipsters, we’re talking to our general audience), here’s ten artists/bands that you're gonna wanna check out.

Princess Nokia
Thursday, March 15


If you haven’t listened to Princess Nokia’s record 1992, you’re sleeping on one of the best hip-hop albums of the last couple years. Destiny Nicole Frasqueri, formerly known as Wavy Spice, and commonly known as Princess Nokia, is a force to be reckoned with in the genre. With her throwback ’90s references she uses throughout the record, on top of her sharp flow and delivery, we’re stoked to see this New York-based rapper rock in the 5-1-2. 11-11:40pm, Clive Bar, 609 Davis St.
