Tegan & Sara and MGK are hosting the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards in Austin!
The 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards are coming up NEXT WEEK, MY FRIENDS. (The show premieres March 17 at 8 p.m. E.T. on MTV and mtvU, in case you forgot.) And in addition to an already stellar lineup of performers, including chart toppers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, now the Woodies have even MORE star power: Indie-poppers and nominees Tegan & Sara will host this year’s Woodie Awards, along with “Wild Boy” and Woodie winner MGK!! Aaand now we’re having a lot of fun imagining that onstage dynamic — Tegan and Sara seem totally chill, and MGK seems, well, like MGK.

Except wait, we have even MORE news. Schizoid pop duo twenty | one | pilots have ALSO been added to the Woodies’ already stacked lineup, and before the big show kicks off, the 2013 Woodies Festival will feature performances on two different stages from HAIM, Timeflies, Jake Bugg, Trinidad Jame$, Pusha T, Joey Bada$$, and Travi$ Scott (catch performance highlights at woodies.mtvu.com). Whoa, that’s a lot of dollar signs. So, don’t forget: Cancel all of your plans next Sunday night so you can watch all of your favorite new artists at the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards. It’s basically the best way to avoid getting a bunch of blisters and torn-up shoes from traipsing the streets of Austin during SXSW.
