More than two dozen acts to invade Austin next month for South By Southwest

According to the official South By Southwest website only ten Colorado acts (Nathaniel Rateliff, ytcracker, Pictureplane, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Breathe Carolina, Epileptinomicon, Matt Morris, Pretty Lights, A Shoreline Dream and Boulder Acoustic Society) are slated to perform at this year's festival. Fact is, though, nearly three times as many will be making the trip to Austin next week.

As mentioned earlier, at Stranahan's Mile Hi-Fidelity party, which we're proudly co-sponsoring this year, two stages will host more than a dozen acts, while five more are slated to appear at FoCoMa's day party that same afternoon. And we just received word that Bocumast is hosting a shindig of its own the day before with even more acts (two of which are also appearing at the other two Colorado parties). See the full line-ups after the jump (with updated set times).
