More information has been coming in about who from the Emerald City is making their way to the Lone Star State to perform at SXSW. The festival has been hot spot for the music industry with labels, producers, and distributors from around the world hoping to find the next big artist.  For six days, the city of Austin, TX will be inundated with bands hailing from every corner of the globeand Seattle has great representation among the showcases. Among the heavy hitters, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and Allen Stone will be sharing the stage with the likes of 50 cent and Iggy Pop.
