#3IsABand – 16 Must See Trios at SXSW 2016



#3IsABand – 16 Must See Trios at SXSW 2016

In my #3IsABand series, I feature bands whose music excites me and who are comprised of exactly three band members. In my preparation for SXSW 2016 I came across several dozens of really cool trios, who I’d like to feature at a later time. For now, I boiled my long list of bands I want to see down to 16. Stay tuned for our SXSW 2016 coverage.
