This year I’ll be attending Austin’s very own South By South West music conference from March 11-16.
Some of the bands attending include: Phantogram, The 1975, Bad Suns, Kurt Vile, Jake Bugg, Foster the People, Childish Gambino, Bleachers, Bad Things, American Authors, The Kooks, Wild Cub, London Gram AND SO MANY MORE.
Showcases, parities, official, unofficial, free- it’s going to be insanity, but I am going to bring you coverage of photos, reviews and videos.
If you’re a newcomer or just looking for something to do in town during the chaos, but don’t know where to start, I suggest checking out Waterloo Records’ free day shows. In the past, they’ve hosted names like FUN., Tegan and Sara, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Twenty One Pilots.
Another one to check out is the House of Vans hosted at Mohawk. They’re partnering with other companies to bring you a wide variety of showcases and bands from punk to hip-hop.
Foster the People and Childish Gambino, among others, are also playing FREE shows at Butler Park. Information can be found here.
