Clicky Clicky's SXSW Picks For The Procastinating Punter

Clicky Clicky's SXSW Picks For Procastinating Punters
[UPDATED Tuesday 3/13/2012 9:42PM] We take it for granted that all music fans are like us, meaning, very likely to build a personal SXSW schedule weeks before our Docs hit the dusty streets of Austin. Maybe you just don't have your shit together? Maybe you like to go with the flow. Whatever your reason, Clicky Clicky's brain trust here weighs in on our picks for the best sets to see at South By. Unsurprisingly, bands that the blog follows closely get their props here; after all, we wouldn't track them if they sucked. But there are also some new or at least newer names here as well. So if you spent all your time figuring out which tacos to eat this coming week and have left the music piece to chance (so far), read on. We think, using the power of our proven system, that below you will encounter many things guaranteed* to rock. The Clicky Clicky dude making each selection is identified in parentheses.
