101X arrived in Austin 18 years ago this spring, and found itself amid a burgeoning music community – some of the members of which are still making music here today. That got us thinking… who are the best Austin artists that have been on the scene during our lifetime? And who's better than YOU to let us know? We started a cheat sheet with our 101 All-Time Homegrown Heroes, from 1995-2013, and you gave us you top 5. And here they are: 1. Spoon 2. Ghostland Obervatory 3. Gary Clark, Jr. 4. Blue October 5. Bob Schneider. Congratulations to Zaundra, who will be winging her way to Coachella! Stay tuned for our next X-cursion to the Sasquatch Music Festival! Brought to you by 7UP Ten.
