Let the madness begin. Your humble Austin Music Minute hostess will be running on too much coffee and fumes all this week, as will several SXSW attendees, but the AMM is happy to provide you with showcase recommendations throughout the week, both official shows and those off the beaten path – unofficial, but still very much worth checking out!
Today’s pick is brought to you by a wonderful local music resource, Sonic Vault Austin: It’s the No Stinking Badges Party 2 (if you don’t know the reference to “no stinkin’ badges”…dude…), with an all-local line-up tonight at The Carousel Lounge, 1110 E. 52nd St. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m. with Grace London, followed by Carry Illinois (featured on today’s AMM), Whalers, Sam Pace, and wrapping up with Sour Bridges.
Monday done right. Get there early to see all these artists. Very recommended. And stay tuned to the AMM for more SXSW recommendations.
