SXSW wants to make you the next Hanson



When you look at the artists who've been snatched up by major labels as the result of performing at the the South By Southwest Music Conference — artists like Hanson, Polyphonic Spree and James Blunt — it's truly impressive how many of them suck. Of course, that says a lot more about the music industry than it does about the Austin, Texas gathering, which features performances by some 2,200 showcasing artists, most of whom do NOT suck.

With that many musicians coming from around the world to play the event, you'd think that at least a handful of Colorado Springs artists would have made this year's roster. But in fact there were none.

It's time to change all that. Local musicians should know that, as of today, SXSW has begun accepting applications for its 2014 music festival, which runs from March 11-16. True, you'll have until Oct. 11 to apply, but the fee does go up along the way. So pay a visit to, and get the full details.

Meanwhile, here's a little something to inspire you.
