SXSW 2009: Filter Magazine's Showdown at Cedar Street

One of the best times during the entire week and basically our home base before we do anything else. Filter Magazine's showdown at Cedar Street has always offered up some of the best up and coming acts all in one place. This year in no exception. They made us sweat it out a little but finally released this years line up! 

The three-day music extravaganza will feature performances from White Lies, Great Northern, N.A.S.A., Wild Light, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Chairlift, Black Gold, Anya Marina, Annuals, a listening event with Bat For Lashes and more.  For those of you who are Austin-bound, make sure to get there early because there will be free BBQ from noon-1pm all three days.
