Thursday 12th March, 2009 12:00PM

1800 bands, four days and one semi-broke journalist sharing a room at the Holiday Inn Austin, Texas.

Welcome to Under The Radar’s coverage of SXSW.

From the 18th to the 22nd March we’ll be providing you with daily updates from one of the most talked about music festivals in the world. By day we’ll be taking notes from the big wig speakers like Quincy Jones discussing the future of music and by night, we’ll be scanning bars, pavements and showcases hoping to find some cool bands to tell you guys about all while trying to score entry into the private parties.

Here's what we're looking forward to from our research so far -

The Household Names:

Echo and the Bunnymen
Tori Amos
Peter Bjorn & John
The Decemberists
PJ Harvey and John Parish
Primal Scream

The Buzz Bands:
