Couldn’t Make It To SXSW? Check Out Couch by Couchwest

For those of us not in a band, not associated with a label, and haven’t been picked up by Rolling Stone, SPIN, or PASTE magazine, Attending the grandiosely mammoth SXSW Festival in Austin, TX is not a viable option.  However, for all of us amateur/professional musical appreciators out there, your fix for new tunes can scored via virtual soundscapes on a virtual landscape from the chip-riddles cushion of your own couch…join us this week at Couch by Couchwest.

The online music festival has received submissions from musicians all over the country including local standouts Shayfer James, The Dead Ex’s, and Those Mockingbirds.

Couch by Couchwest is being labeled as the antidote to SXSW, bringing new music to the masses, not in overcrowded music clubs in Texas, but from the comfort of one’s own home.

Check out Shayfer James live performance of “Villainous Thing” below, and head over to the official CXCW website to catch all the submissions here.
