Thrillcall correspondent, John Koch, is taking over SXSW to give you the inside scoop on countless artists who will be performing at the festival, (and we imagine sweating and rocking their hearts out). Throughout the week, Koch will be posting exclusive interviews, live tweets of show reviews, photos, and celeb sitings all direct from the dusty streets of Austin. Thrillcall has been invited to attend the all-exclusive Perez Hilton party, as well as the exclusive MTV party, with the possibility of attending the mtvU Woodies (their awards show, which happens during SXSW in Austin). What we’re trying to say is, if you don’t keep up with us you will truly be missing out.

You can find all of the artist information/pages (as well as sign-up to follow their upcoming shows and track tour dates), at We’ve added a few links below to some artists you might be interested in.

Be prepared for the upcoming week by liking, following, bookmarking and just overtly stalking us in general:

Thrillcall will be attending too many shows to count, but we’ll end up counting ’em anyway. Check our schedule for artists you’re interested in and then watch for content! Here we go…
