Playing SXSW? Send us your muzak so we can blast it to millions!


Every year Rhapsody’s editorial team heads to SXSW in Austin, TX to report back on all the potentially kick-ass musicians playing out there. We record interviews and stripped down acoustic sets with some of the kick-assiest. Previous years have included Macklemore, Passion Pit2 Chainz & Talib Kweli. This year we want to make sure we hear as many musicians as possible, so we can feature the best and make sure other people hear their sweet, sweet muzak, too.

If you’re playing at SXSW or are representing someone who is, send us a song that represents your band’s sound – we’ll feature our most beloved submission in a two-song, stripped down acoustic set and tell everyone we know about how smashing they are.

So, here’s the deal:

  • Email your one song (we’ll only consider one, so make it your most beloved) to:
  • Make sure to include the artist/band name, title of the song, and contact info in your submission.
  • Get ‘er done by: 11PM PST, March 4th, 2013
  • Your band has to actually be in Austin, TX for SXSW and must be available to perform the acoustic set on March 14th at 3PM CST. For real.
We can’t wait to hear from you, check us out on Facebook, TwitterYouTube & Instagram (shameless plug) for SXSW updates!
