Over 500 Bands Confirmed For SXSW

I'm lucky enough that my job will take me to SXSW again this year, and now that the flights and rooms are all booked, I thought I'd poke around the Internets to see what the band rumors look like two months out.

Austinist and Done Waiting usually do pretty good jobs of keeping track of what's happening down there, but the Club Kingsnake site has over 500 bands listed as confirmed! Here's the list as they show it, with a couple MP3's thrown in by us for good measure:
