SXSW, the annual pulled-pork crawl and Frito pie gorge-sesh scored by hundred of bands, is almost upon us! Our bags are packed, our amazing parties are booked, and we've called St. David's South Austin Medical Center who has kindly reminded us that, no, we cannot put Stubb's BBQ sauce on an IV drip. The final thing missing is a proper soundtrack. To that end, here is a 60-track blowout of the hottest, most anticipated, must-see acts at SXSW. They run the gamut from a recent crop of SPIN Essentials (Caitlin Rose, Waxahatchee) to living legends (Souls of Mischief) to bands we hand-picked to play our incredible parties at Stubb's (Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and at the SPIN House (Antwon, the Coathangers, Wampire, Bleached).

Download this monster right here or stream it below. And we'll see you where the stars at night are big and bright.
