Bobby Jealousy (11:15am, Austin Ventures stage)

Fusing baroque-pop flamboyance, Nineties rock infectiousness, and old-school Austin weirdness, Bobby Jealousy's songs of love and death will drive you wild.

Max Frost (Noon, Austin Ventures stage)

21-year-old multi-instrumentalist croons on rap tracks and writes soul pop reminiscent of Cee Lo Green.

True Believers (4pm, Zilker Tent stage)

The heroic, mid-Eighties guitar rock mothership of Austin legends Jon Dee Graham and Alejandro Escovedo reunited last year in the wake of SXSW director Brent Grulke's death.

Bright Light Social Hour (7pm, Austin Ventures stage)

After breaking out locally with the irresistible electro-rock hook "Back and Forth," BLSH have proven themselves on the national stage with their big-time live show.
