In just a couple of weeks, hundreds of hopeful musicians will descend on the quiet little town of Austin in hopes of catching the attention of the thousands of music execs, label honchos, journalists and just plain fans attending the South by Southwest Music & Media Conference. With all the commotion, it can be hard to sift through to find the gems. Thank goodness for NPR.

The indie-friendly network is giving away an 11-song sampler of “the artists featured by NPR Music and public radio stations” during the music portion of this year’s SXSW, which takes place from March 17-21.

Just head on over to NPR.org for complete instructions on how you can snag your free copy of these tracks:

    I almost threw up when I saw the main article regarding SXSW and then Bret Michaels...luckily, he won't be there. Thank goodness for the cheeseball ordinance is still in effect in the city of Austin.
