A list of the first 200+ artists who are confirmed for SXSW 2010 showcases was released yesterday, representing only a small fraction of the total number of artists who will play next year’s festival. Scanning through, the mix is varied and as expected shows a strong international presence.  Any early contenders for possible buzz band status on the list?  Our clairvoyant tells us to keep an eye on chi-town’s I Fight Dragons, L.A.’s Warpaint and Auckland’s Kingston.
