Heads up: SXSW taking band applications starting NOW

South By Southwest isn't until March 11-16 in 2014, but they've started taking applications for bands today. Orlando has sent a fair share of local groups out west to the hip Austin music festival in years past, and I can't help but wonder who will be among the chosen ones this year? If you're planning to submit your band, I'd recommend submitting early/as soon as you finish reading this post. But you have from July 9 until September 6 to apply at a discounted rate of $33, after which, the price you pay just to ask permission to play goes up to $45. Applications close on October 11, 2013.

Details here.

Just as an FYI: I am sincerely interested in any bands who will be making that trip to Austin, even if it's just to party at the unofficial showcases. So, if you have SXSW plans, please, keep me updated on what you will be doing by emailing (same goes for all your band updates, of course).
