2. Twin Shadows
Twin Shadows is a true blast from the past. Although they are current, Twin Shadows sounds straight out from the 80’s. Who doesn’t love that?
M.I.A. has the reputation as the “bad girl.” She even flaunts it in her song “bad girls”. She’s practically British bad girl royalty. The gist, bad girls put on great shows.
4. Rob Delaney
I had to throw in a comedian, and Rob Delaney fits the bill. Writer, Comedian, Genius.

Hailing from Australia, Cut Copy is an electronic band that really knows how to get people to move. With synths and beats, their music is truly and experience you will never forget.
Slayer is a classic in the American thrash metal culture, who really know how to put on a show. Lots of hair, smoke, and awesome guitar solos.
7. Daniel Johnston
Daniel Johnston is practically an icon in Austin. Have you seen the graffitied wall “Hi, how are you?” Yeah, he sings that album. And it’s good. Daniel Johnston is a great singer songwriter with similarities compared with the Beatles.

Although some call them “emo” music, Title Fight are a punk rock band with bite. They are gauranteed to pump you up.
9. Snoop Dogg
We all know who he is. C’mon, you can’t miss Snoop Dogg!
Simon Green, or Bonobo, creates a more mellowed out feeling through his music. For when you need a break from intense music, Bonobo is a great listen.
