Luckily, since SXSW Music officially starts on Wednesday, tonight's massive line-up of residencies is hardly affected, save for The Voom Blooms who are replaced by We Barbarians and others at the Viper Room tonight (full list of tonight's residencies after the jump). However, the exodus of Los Angeles based bands is upon us.

Also, ticket sales for 2008 Premiere Marquee Club have begun. The "club" has no membership fee and will host over 60 concerts at The Greek and the Gibson Amphitheater. Ringo Starr, Robert Plant, Allison Krauss, Melissa Etheridge, the LA Salsa Music Festival are all part of the massive lineup.
