AUSTIN -- South by Southwest is wrapping up this weekend.

Since the first festival in 1987, SXSW has been a destination for a wide variety of musical artists. For every superstar such as Bruce Springsteen who's performed, hundreds of lesser known bands have descended on Austin looking to be "discovered."

Royal Teeth was one of those groups this year, and the Louisiana-based band succeeded in getting more visibility.

Royal Teeth's booking agent responded to a tweet from CNN Music, and next thing you know, CNN recorded the six-piece performing one of their songs.
