First South By Southwest DVD Coming Next Month

The South By Southwest Music Festival has become one of the biggest and most influential events of its kind since it was launched in Austin, Texas in 1987, but it’s taken until now for its performances to make it to DVD.

Shout! Factory-affiliated Blaze TV custom-built two clubs, The Lone Star Lounge and The Bat Bar, at the Austin Convention Center this past March during the annual fest. The artists who played there were featured in a three-day, 24-hour DirecTV broadcast captured in multi-camera high definition with 5.1 surround sound. The best performances were chosen for inclusion on SXSW Live 2007, a Shout! Factory DVD scheduled for an Aug. 28 release. The disc also features artist interviews and backstage footage.

Here are the tracks on SXSW Live 2007:

* The Bravery — “Honest Mistake”
