SXSW 2014: 25 Must-See Acts

The shows everyone will be talking about once the dust (and BBQ sauce) settles

Perfect Pussy

Drew Reynolds

Why You Can't Miss Them: This Syracuse, New York punk band sent the underground into hype spasms last year with a four-song cassette demo (later released as an EP on their Bandcamp page). They're rock's most intense new band, thanks largely to frontwoman Meredith Graves, who's been known to scream so violently during the band's 15-minute noise-assault gigs that she becomes physically ill. Out later this month, Perfect Pussy's excellent full-length debut presents a slightly more nuanced, but still totally blazing, version of their brain-scrambling sound.
