Girls, Women; Catch 'em at SXSW

What with Vivian Girls, Girls and Women all blowing up on the scene things can get pretty confusing. All of these groups have a lo-fi quality, some more than others, they are also all showcasing at SXSW, but the most important thing they have in common is that they are all bands to watch!

They are also all playing lots of free showcases, sometimes together so you can get have a girly overload. You'll find the details about those shows, courtesty of ShowListAustin after the jump...
