SXSW 2013: You Won’t Share Their Top 5 ‘Can’t Miss’ Acts

You Won't
youwontmusic.com

Musicians are fans, too, and in anticipation of SXSW 2013, Diffuser.fm asked some of our favorite showcasing artists to share with us the acts they’re most looking forward to seeing at this year’s festival. Among those to participate is You Won’t, a Boston-based duo featuring singer-guitarist Josh Arnoudse and drummer-keyboardist-singer Raky Sastri.

After forming You Won’t in 2010, Arnoudse and Sastri self-produced their debut release, ‘Skeptic Goodbye,’ during a three-month recording stint in Eastern Massachusetts. They backed the disc with a trans-American trek that earned props from the likes of The New Yorker (who called them “charming and thought-provoking”), Paste (“completely mesmerizing”) and Nylon, who said they have “a retro pop sound with a folksy Leonard Cohen edge.”

The band’s official showcase appearance at South by Southwest is slated for March 13 at the Parish, but You Won’t have five other gigs lined up during their time in Austin — including, in a time-honored SXSW tradition, three in one day (March 15). Check out their full SXSW schedule here, and scroll down to read what Arnoudse had to say about his “can’t miss” artists.
