SXSW-2016-620

As we finally dip into winter here in Music City, our attention turns to the warmer days ahead.  Bands are announcing spring tours like crazy, and a number of them are centered around the annual musical pilgrimage to Austin, TX for SXSW.  While those not lucky enough to attend will reap the spoils of touring bands, a huge number of your (and our) local favorites will be making the journey to show their wares in the 2,000+ band melee that will take over greater Austin.  In three separate waves of announcements these local stand outs were all selected: Judah & The Lion, Ron Pope, Blackfoot Gypsies, Diarrhea Planet, Smooth Hound Smith, 8 Ball Aikten, Ruby Amanfu, Carl Anderson, Bobby Bare Jr., Carey, Daddy Issues, Luther Dickinson, ELEL, Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes, Escondido, firekidJanice Gaines, The GillsThe Killing Floor, Lionlimb, Loretta Lynn, Music Band, Pujol, Saint PéThe Wans, & The Wild Feathers.

Making you think about heading to Austin to support local?  Thought so. Better hurry up and book your hotel now, and head below for a taste of each to revel in how awesome of a music city we actually live in.
