SXSW Spotlight: Echo And The Bunnymen
How could this not be on the list? These guys have always been huge in England, and a cult favorite from the 80's here in the states. Like the time the Church played at SXSW, I just don't know what to expect as far as a crowd for these guys. It is amazing that one of the shows is at EMO'S, which is tiny, tiny, TINY compared to these guys' supposed big egos. The Bat Bar, with a broadcast on DirectTV makes more sense. But what the heck do I know? Here's the big MTV Alternative Nation hit, Lips Like Sugar:
