Holy shit, SXSW is almost here. Are we really doing it again? Yeah, we’re really doing it again. And so are you. Prepare to subject your body to torture: fourteen-hour long days of music, free tacos, afternoon boozing, lots of headbanging, warm weather and tons of metal. Are we really complaining? Yeah, sorry, we’re assholes.

MetalSucks has you covered as always with a complete list of all the metal shows in Austin during SXSW. This year we’ve combined our official SXSW and unofficial party listings into one place since it makes a lot more sense to do it that way. Check out our list of metal panels at the Convention Center, metal films during the Film portion of the festival, and stay tuned for our general SXSW survival guide.

Without further ado, here is everything you need to know about metal during the Music portion of SXSW.

This list will be updated as new events continue to be added. If you have a relevant show that’s missing, email us at news[at]metalsucks.net with SXSW 2014 as the subject.
