It is the middle of March, where leprechauns run amok turning everyone's beer green and destroying March Madness brackets around the country. For the sober few, JP Saxe and his newest release, The Few Things, will provide something lucky for the hopeful thinkers.
It's time for your weekly dose of New Indie Music. With the end of SXSW signaling the start of the festival season (25 days until Coachella, baby!), get your playlists up to scratch by checking out the following tracks from Bishop Briggs, Parquet Courts, Jenaux, and more.
And the best performance this year goes to …. Just kidding. We don’t actually have an award for the best performances at SXSW. We do however have some pretty amazing shots captured by our photographer Stuart Hargrove of some of the action happening on Wednesday.

The time has come yet again where we here at We Are The Guard strap on our trekking shoes and stretchy pants (yes, we know, it’s quite the outfit), and fly over to Austin, Texas for a week long music binge. For now, we leave you with some of Monday’s music performances … in no particular order here they are.
