Unofficial SXSW Showcasing Bands Torrent
For three years in a row, the SXSW mafia would assemble a gigantic amount of free music from all the lucky little princesses chosen to play their precious festival and release it in a torrent. (A torrent is a computer thing one's iPhone-owning brother might use to gather free episodes of Weeds from the internet.) They're not doing one of their own this year, but they still have free downloads of all the music on their website and some enterprising hero assembled a torrent file from 'em. 764 bands. 3.5 GB.
