aquarium-drunkard-mixtape.jpgYes folks, it’s almost that time of year again; one marked by BBQ, tex mex, margaritas, ice cold, Lone Star tall boys, and oh yes, music. SXSW.

With thousands of bands descending upon Austin, March 12th through the 16th, it’s helpful that the festival’s official website offers up, along with the artist’s bio, an MP3 (when available). But even then it can be a daunting task to wade through them all. Not to worry, though, Team Drunkard has perused the lists and wrangled up a series of SXSW 2008 mix-tapes for your downloading needs. Drunkard approved, these are made up of bands we’ve seen in the past, or plan on seeing next week. (see the entire official SXSW artist list here). Part 1 of 3.

**Also, if you have not yet done so – RSVP to our SXSW day party (Fri/Sat) HERE…
