Once again, KEXP will return to Austin, Texas March 14-16 for 2012’s rendition of the South by Southwest Music Conference. Every year, SXSW features dozens upon dozens of up-and-coming bands and artists that are blowing up on the scene (the lineup this year is absolutely spectacular). And for the second year in a row, KEXP will broadcast live from Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop and host 15 amazing bands including some up-and-comers like Howler and Of Monsters and Men, some old favorites like The Wedding Present and Imperial Teen, and even some Seattle stars like Allen Stone and Pickwick.
