South by Southwest Music Festival wristbands go on sale at 10am this morning at They’re $159, including tax. It’s true you didn’t need one last SXSW to catch Bruce Springsteen guesting with Alejandro Escovedo at the Austin Music Awards, but without one, you didn’t stand a chance of witnessing the Boss at the Moody Theater.

Here’s SX’s wristband rules & regulations:

“Sales are limited to Austin area residents. All advance sales will be online. Individuals may purchase one wristband for themselves and one for another person whose name must be provided at the time of purchase. Online purchase requires a credit card with a billing zip code in the Austin area. A list of zip codes is available at”

The artist schedule so far, running two pages in today’s Chronicle, updates regularly at the SXSW site here.
