The Barryfest Guide to New Orleans Bands at SXSW 2011

With Foburg only days behind us, its older, larger, captain-of-the-varsity-football-team brother, Austin’s annual South by Southwest Festival, will be officially underway in a matter of hours. For all the adventurous New Orleans cats willing to take the drive/flight to Texas, the experience can be at best completely overwhelming and at worst something akin to a hipster Apocalypse Now.

Though we’d all love to see the Strokes show from Levi’s or the Kanye and Radiohead secret shows, let’s be honest: it’s probably not going to happen. And if you’ve been unlucky enough to miss the RSVP’s for the all-day free food/free booze/free music festivals or failed to procure yourself a killer priority badge, your only option is to be prepared.

Barryfest is here to help, at least a tiny bit, with your preparation. We’ve put together a handy list of local and semi-local New Orleans acts that are taking the trip with you.
