Berklee Bands at SXSW (Add Yours)

Hello—It’s high 70s down here in Austin, and I’m planning my attack. I use “plan” loosely, since at SXSW, serendipity works.

However, I intend to see a bunch of Berklee student and alumni bands. Here’s my working list, courtesy of Berklee publicist Margot Edwards. If your band should be on this list but isn’t, post a comment.

    Great lineup, Danielle and Margot! Sleep is not a priority . . .

  2. At the moment, actually, the other three people in this apartment are still asleep… storing up fuel.
