Jimmy Kimmel's Fake Bands at South by Southwest

Everyone at SXSW Is So Excited About Fake Bands

All the cool kids are in Austin, TX, right now for the annual South by Southwest festival, where over 2,000 bands have played. Jimmy Kimmel didn't want to miss out on the fun, so he moved his show down there for the week. On Thursday, Jimmy noted that "people who come to music festivals pride themselves on knowing who the new acts are, even if they don't know who the new acts are." To call them out on this, Jimmy sent a camera crew around Austin to ask SXSW-goers about made-up bands with ridiculous names, just like he did at Coachella. The results are hilarious.
