South by So What? We Kid. We Kid. Here, Then, The Locals Making the Trip.

It wouldn't be South by Southwest without a heroic performance from our favorite local soul legend, Bobby Patterson.

So, we've been trolling the SXSW Music site for the locals that made the cut. Until today we'd only heard tale of Hogpig and The Theater Fire, since, well, there'd been no official list. The only thing we really knew for sure was that Gilberto Gil, Pete Townshend, Emmylou Harris and Iggy Pop would all be addressing conference goers at some point. Exciting enough, but we still needed to know, you know?

This morning there finally appeared the first of a to-be-oft-updated band list for the annual onslaught of hipsters, aging music execs and broke-ass journalists hitting Austin in March. We're shocked in some instances and thrilled in others at who from the DFW is on the list...and who ain't. The list is after the jump. --Merritt Martin
