SXSW 2008: Dead Confederate

Both in name and in sound, Dead Confederate aims to further the cause of Southern rock. The Georgia band does indeed mix its Neil Young with its Lynyrd Skynyrd, but underneath all those heavy chords is a group of guys raised on Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and other titans of early-'90s alt-rock.

Hear the other bands from this concert: R.E.M., Papercranes, Johnathan Rice, Summerbirds in the Cellar.
