Feeling bummed because you're not in Austin right now for SXSW? Buck up, young modern. As our fearless leader Ian S. Port has already discovered, you "pretty much can't spit in Austin" without hitting an act, or a festivalgoer, from San Francisco and environs. So it's like Dolores Park on a Saturday, with better amplification and way more barbecue sauce. And roughly the same distribution of beards.

Fortunately for those of us who stayed behind to enjoy the gloomy skies and BART delays, The Bay Bridged has compiled a three-volume mixtape of SF bands playing at SXSW this year. You may have heard the first in podcast form already, but you can grab two web-only slabs filled with choice cuts by Shannon and the Clams, Personal and the Pizzas, The Fresh & Onlys, Birds & Batteries, Zion I and the Grouch, Sugar & Gold, Hunx & His Punx, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down -- and that's only the bands with conjunctions in their names.


Download the mixes here. If you're an attentive hipster local music aficionado you're probably familiar with most of these acts, and many of the songs representing them here, but whatever -- where else are you going to find so much San Francisco music in one place? Oh, right, Austin. But you're not there, now are you?

Bonus non-SXSW solidarity gesture: this year-old Sexpigeon post about potential panel names for the festival's just-finished tech portion. As you'll see, it hasn't aged a bit. "Like, Win" indeed.
