It's the most wonderful time of the year - SXSW announcements! The week long festival/insanity/shitshow has revealed their third wave of bands, a list that's 700+ names deep. Any buzzband you've ever wanted to see in your life is probably playing this year, but there are some larger names on the bill as well including Charli XCX, Sharon Van Etten, Twin Shadow, Dum Dum Girls, and Ryan Hemsworth.
