Chicago Bands at SXSW 2009

sxsw 2009 music chicagoSXSW, the country's largest music festival, is featuring more than a dozen local bands at its official showcase concerts, plus many more from the region. Here's the full list of confirmed bands so far; more will no doubt be added closer to the festival, which runs March 18-22 (and a couple unofficial days before and after) in Austin, TX. See a list of confirmed local bands after the jump.

Anathallo
Pugz Atomz
Andrew Bird
Disappears
The Enright House
Jon Langford And The Pine Valley Cosmonauts
Mahjonng
Joe Pug
Vince P
Rabid Rabbit
Red Red Meat
Anni Rossi
Scotland Yard Gospel Choir
Tom Schraeder and His Ego

An "official" list posted on Stereogum and elsewhere also lists Kid Sister and Willy Joy, and Blueblood claims they're confirmed, but as of yet none is on SXSW's site.

Bands from within three or four hours' driving distance include:
Absinthe Minds (Madison WI)
Alash (Milwaukee)
Dead Luke (Madison WI)
Diplomats of Solid Sound (Iowa City IA)
Grampall Jookabox (Indianapolis)
Ohtis (Bloomington IL)
Jason Reeves (Iowa City IA)
Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band (Nashville, IN)
Zola Jesus (Madison WI)

We're also on the lookout for local bands playing at one (or more) of the dozens of "unofficial" showcases at SXSW. If your band is headed down, please let us know in the comments. And, of course, stay tuned for coverage from the festival itself in March.
