Listen, we all know that all you lucky, Austin-bound jerks are going to be spending a majority of SXSW making eyes at anything with a pulse. Let’s up your chances of getting in some quality necking with a hot queer or two by talking about what shows you should go to that feature LGBT artists (or, in the case of the Kill Rock Stars showcase, are just likely to have lots of hot dykes in the audience). Hat tip to Alyx at Feminist Music Geek for her excellent guide to SXSW, which inspired this post.

If I’ve missed anything, or you know any other artists who are playing the GAYbiGAYGAY showcase, holler at me!
