There are so many artists going to SXSW, it is hard for me to decide which bands that I'd like to see. I know I'd like to catch a band that's on the verge of breaking out - a band that just might make it big in 2009. To help me find the potential break out bands, I've updated my SXSW Artist Catalog to also list the 'Rising' artists. . These are the artists that are getting a lot of buzz in the mp3 blogs, but don't have a whole lot of listeners yet. Presumably these are the bands that are getting noticed by the critics, but haven't built a listener base yet.

According to this metric, the band to see at SXSW this year is Come On Gang! - they have a 'hotness' score of 28, while at they only have 45 listeners.

Much thanks to Chris Gaines for suggesting this metric.


you have to see Superguidis!
