The Barryfest Guide to New Orleans Bands at SXSW 2012

With Foburg only days behind us, the festival’s older, larger, captain-of-the-varsity-football-team brother – Austin’s annual South by Southwest Festival – will be officially underway in only 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 weekend’s big secret show from a band way too big to be performing at Stubb’s or be there when this year’s version of the “Bill Murray Bartending Bombshell” spontaneously occurs, 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 (though why you’d want to wait around all day in the hot sun to see The-Dream at Fader Fort anyway is beyond me) 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. Stop by, say hey, and drink some beers with them while you’re at it.
