SXSW 2012 — WHAT WE SAW

3/23/2012—Anybody with a Lexus in their driveway knows that music and Lexus models go together, for more reasons that we can list here (owners with the Mark Levinson® Reference Surround Sound Audio System option, you know what I mean).

So it’s really no surprise that Lexus has a considerable presence on Pandora online radio these days, including a superb indie-music station.

Last week, with all this in mind, we traveled to Austin, Texas for SXSW, the mother of all innovative indie music festivals (there’s also a film and interactive component), to visit a few of this year’s noteworthy up-and-coming bands and maybe recommend a few additions to your driving playlists.

The story will be posted late next week, but here’s some initial 2012 SXSW flavor for Lexus-driving music fans:
