This week on Name 3 Songs…

Fangirl Nonsense: We take a look at the way SXSW is or isn’t living up to its reputation as a place for music discovery. We also talk through some of our favorite bands of the week ahead of our SXSW interviews dropping in the next two weeks.

Prior to SXSW taking place, several musicians and panellists pulled out of the festival due to the US Military's involvement as a “super sponsor”.

Some artists dropped their official showcases but remained performing at unofficial shows, while other artists dropped from the festival completely and did not make the trip to Austin, Texas.

We look at the decisions of the artists, the conversations that happened on the ground at the fest, and why the military would be involved in SXSW in the first place. We also look at other arts and entertainment moments that the military was involved in and why, at the end of the day, art and war will always be at odds with one another.
