NPR will Broadcast/Webcast Live from SXSW 2008

NPR is returning to Austin for South by Southwest 2008, and this time NPR Music be broadcasting and web streaming live music from the event — including R.E.M.’s first appearance at SXSW on March 12. Other performers will include My Morning Jacket, Vampire Weekend, and Yo La Tengo.

NPR Music will also be on-scene conducting interviews, and Bob Boilen of All Songs Considered will be hosting much of the broadcast. Carrie Brownstein will also be participating in a blogger panel at the event.

If you haven’t checked out our new music site that launched in November 2007, it’s an outstanding non-commercial destination to discover new music and artists and listen to live studio sessions and interviews.

More updates and concert schedules will be posted at the NPR SXSW 2008 page.
