Pitchfork Music Festival SXSW Party Revealed!

The flyer don't lie: SXSW is getting its own miniature indoor version of the Pitchfork Music Festival! On March 16, Pitchfork, in association with our pals at Chicago booking firm The Windish Agency, is set to take over the venerable Austin venue Emo's, to present 12 of our favorite artists from the Class of 2006-07 on two stages. And just like the festival itself, the party will be an all-ages event.

Attendees will be eligible to win tickets to the actual Pitchfork Music Festival, which as previously reported, returns to Chicago's own Union Park this July 14-15. You can also expect the festival's very first lineup announcements to be made between sets from the following bands:
