San Diego Represents (Kinda) At SXSW

San Diego, perhaps lacking a cohesive "sound" gets little love in the grand scheme of the music world. The Coachella lineup is thin with San Diego bands (Grand Ole Party & Slightly Stoopid) and the lineup of San Diego bands expected to be a part of the actual South By Southwest showcases is a pretty short list, too. I really wanted to go this year, but it looks like it just might not be in the cards for me, but congrats to those bands expected to play.

These are the San Diego bands rumored to play SXSW, as published by Austinist. For the complete "rumors" list, click here. Also, it should be noted, that on the official SXSW page, Republic of Letters is the #2 friend of the festival. Whether this is a sign or coincidental, we have yet to find out, but either way, the band will be in Austin.

Delta Spirit
Greg Laswell
The Night Marchers
Vena Cava

And, not on the Austinist list, but confirmed via text message:

Louis XIV
Angela Correa
Truckee Brothers
