Arab-American Artists to Watch at SXSW //
One of the biggest and maybe the most enjoyable music-turned-multimedia festivals of the year, South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, TX has become the place to be for artists of all types and statures. From independents pushing their EPs on the street to big names selling out venues and lining people up around the block, everyone is (or should be) there. This year, we’re excited to see some Arab-American artists joining the mix. If you’re lucky enough to be in Austin over the course of the next 10 days, here’s a guide to who’s playing where and when.
