South by Southwest 2011: Candy Claws, DeVotchKa and Slim Cessna tapped to perform
Ah, here we are again, a new year. You know what that means? Yep. Time to start the South by Southwest countdown. The first bands have been announced, and although there will likely be a bazillion more announced, of the groups announced so far, three local bands have received official invitations: Candy Claws and two bona fide SXSW veterans, DeVotchKa and Slim Cessna's Auto Club. While we've already heard a ton of chatter about the fest (taking place March 16-20), which acts do you think deserve to get an official nod? Who do you think will end up heading down on their own? Do you think it's even worth going anymore? Why or why not? What say you? Feel free to weigh in below.
