MUSIC

SiriusXM U will be in Austin during SXSW, and you know what that means: more #sxsselfies

March 10, 2014

Happy SXSW week! As we speak, all manner of self-proclaimed film, music, and tech geeks are descending on Austin, TX for this year’s South By South West festival (running March 7-16). Needless to say, things are gonna get squished.

SiriusXM U will be among those hanging out in Austin this week, where they’ll be scouting up-and-coming talent, interviewing bands streaming through the Fader Fort, live tweeting from @SiriusXMU, posting to Instagram, making frequent stops to the taco truck, and, of course, asking musicians to take #sxsselfies.

What’s a #sxsselfie? Coined by XM U’s own Jenny Eliscu, it’s exactly how it sounds: a bunch of killer SXSW bands taking selfies together.

Let’s review last year’s Southby Selfies so you’ll know what to expect:

1.) Wild Belle
