SXSW 2012 (not so short) short list

So I'm starting to build up a rough short list of who I want to see at SXSW next month. There are still more bands to be announced, and of course those who show up for impromptu gigs. I'm trying hard not to just list bands I've seen before, however with some of these that just ain't possible!

Anyway, a complete list of the official bands can be found on this site or over on the LastFM events page, let me know who you reckon I should check out!

Here's my in no-particular-order shortish list!
