No self-respecting San Franciscan visits Texas, for fear of being hanged, shot, or forced to attend a hoedown. The one and only exception is the SXSW Music Conference and Festival in Austin. That's where hundreds of bands and music industry insiders converge for five days in one of the most important events in the industry, and that's where The Bay Bridged, in collaboration with Bay Area labels Three Ring Records and Tricycle Records, will host San Francisco bands-to-watch like Scissors For Lefty, Film School, Social Studies, Birds and Batteries, and Von Iva.

In an interview at their podcasting headquarters in the Mission District, The Bay Bridged editors Ben Van Houten and Christian Cunningham sipped on a couple beers and spoke passionately about their work in the thriving SF music scene.
