Official, non-official, who cares?
Dozens of Chicago bands are making the trek down to Austin, Texas, to play both official showcases and just-for-the-hell-of-it sets at SXSW, and we gathered them up in a tidy package for you. Check out our 2012 coverage of the fest at redeyechicago.com/sxsw.
Don't see your SXSW-bound band listed here? We'll be updating and adding bands up until the fest: Leave info in the comments or tweet us at @redeyechimusic.
