Playlist of Minnesotan Bands Playing South By Southwest

(via STNNNG's MySpace Page)

Even though the flier at the top of the post is for one specific show only, the name of it seems apt for all of the Minnesota bands headed to SXSW this week. In order to help SXSW patrons decide which Minnesotan groups they want to see whilst in town for the four-day fest, we've decided to put together a little playlist of all the bands we know of (if we missed any, feel free to name them off in the comment section). Note: the times listed are for when the Minnesotan bands go on, not for when the show begins. For more information, go here. A star like this * at the end of an MP3 denotes an MFR fave. Enjoy yourselves, you lucky bastards.

Truetone -
You're welcome! Thanks for reading. Great job on the Baby Guts interview (I linked to it for a show write-up we did on them). Were you at SXSW?
