It's that time of the year again: SXSW is right around the corner, so purchase your badges as soon as possible! For those low on funds, don't worry, I will definitely keep you informed on any free concerts (like this one) and events going on during that week.
On a similar note, there are so many great shows coming up around the area in the next year that it would be a shame not to mention:
August Burns Red -Â Emo's East 1.28.12
The Naked and Famous - Stubb's Austin - 3.23.12
Bob Schneider - Gruene Hall - 3.31.12
Childish Gambino -Â Stubb's Austin - 4.05.12
The Black Keys with special Guest Arctic Monkeys - Frank Erwin Center - 4.25.12
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Frank Erwin Center - 5.5.12
M83 with I Break Horses - Stubb's Austin - 5.18.12
Red Hot Chili Peppers - AT&T Center - 9.29.12
Also, damn everyone who bought their Radiohead tickets the first day they went on sale! Haha, no but really that has to be the fastest I have ever seen a concert sell out.
This is my favorite time of the year, simply because of all the live music to come and how lit up Austin gets around this time. I hope you see some of you guys at these shows!
I'll definitely continue to post any upcoming free shows, parties and events, as they are released, for SXSW.
