BitchTapes SXSW Preview

I'm headed back to my old stomping grounds of Austin, Texas for another year of South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival mayhem. In a festival packed with almst 2,500 bands playing over the course of five days, finding feminist jams amidst the Brooklyn bro-bands is like unearthing diamonds in the desert. Today's mix is the first of two celebrating the feminists of SX - this one is a preview of what I'm most excited to see. In addition to my coverage here at Bitch, I'll be broadcasting for NPR Music on the All Songs Considered podcast, which issues late-night dispatches of what we've seen and loved over the course of each day. Head over to to keep the recommendations coming!
