Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, Katy Perry Added to SXSW 2009
5

Total coincidence that three of the big headliners added to the SXSW Music Festival lineup are: Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, and Katy Perry? Three women, three eras of rock/pop, and three similar approaches to singing about gender. Of course, throwing in an Alanis Morissette would help even out the timeline a bit. Anyway, the annual music festival has announced its almost complete lineup of performers. The music festival runs March 18-22.

The latest highlights, in my opinion, would include: Lil Jon, Gomez, Andrew Bird, Bishop Allen, Annuals, Dan Auerbach, Martina Topley Bird, Busdriver, Cut Off Your Hands, Keegan DeWitt, Dirty Projectors, Echo and the Bunnymen, Explosions in the Sky, Glasvegas, The Grates, Great Northern, Grizzly Bear, Handsome Furs, The High Dials, The Knux, Erin McCarley, New York Dolls, No Age, Okkervil River, Razorlight, Riverboat Gamblers, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Shearwater, Silversun Pickups, St. Vincent, Richard Swift, Titus Andronicus, Viva Voce, M. Ward, We Are Standard, Wheat, Young Galaxy. It's gonna be a fun time, to say the least.
