As Austin enters the cacophony of SXSW's music week, we've prepared a guide to San Antonio musicians on display in the capitol. Below is our day-by-day schedule of SA bands, artists and promoters pitching in for the most hectic and exciting seven days that the music business has to offer. Official showcases, requiring a pricy badge, are noted below.
