Austin’s annual wet dream for music lovers can be an overwhelming festival to prepare for. Hundreds of artists play South by Southwest, and deciding which ones to see on a given day can seem like an insurmountable task. That’s why we sifted through the daily schedules and put together this easily digestible day planner for SXSW 2012

Follow our lead and you can see everyone from established artists like Fiona Apple to about-to-break bands like Django Django to live favorites like Theophilus London. And no, we’re not recommending you go see Bruce Springsteen at SXSW, because that’s just going to be a complete cluster-cuss.

April 23: Jhené Aiko Sails Out

Fresh from her impressive stint at Coachella, sultry R&B siren Jhené Aiko strikes a sizzling pose for the May issue of GQ, where she looks unsurprisingly stunning. This steamy snap along with a few others was shared by Def Jam, who are slated to release Jhené's debut album Souled Out next month.
