SXSW 2011 Mix #1 [15 Tracks from 15 of the Artists with the Largest Markets]

SXSW 2011 is upon us. To celebrate this festival, I toast with a mix:

This full-length mix is meant for those interested in who the premiere groups which SXSW is showcasing this upcoming weekend. I plan to be in attendance [about a 6-hour drive away]. I plan on folding down the seats and sleeping in back of my car. I have gone with zero dollars before, and its fun even if all you can do is eat and walk the streets amongst the crowd of tens-of-thousands. Last year I got lost among the hundreds of musical groups, so I decided to do the world a service and post 15 tracks from the 15 biggest artists that everyone knows or should know, just in time for SXSW 2011:
