South-By Saturday

It’s alarming to find your humble Austin Music Minute host’s brain has already gone numb, when SXSW has just started. Not enough caffeine in the world. Ever heard of Death Wish Coffee? It’s barely helping.

After that lovely caffeinated shout out, let’s take a look at today’s handful of must-see recs that include official showcases and shows off the beaten path:

-Starting today at NOON, the On Vinyl Spring Showcase, 6016 Wilcott Ct., gets the day going for all the lovely locals. Featuring performances by Marijuana Sweet Tooth, PR Newman, Torre BlakeEimaral Sol and more. Presented by On Vinyl Media with love.

Tonight, there’s the /start showcase at The Parish, 214 E. 6th St., featuring AMM fave CAPYAC, The Vapor Caves, and Kid Monks. Doors at 9 p.m. Please RSVP here at Do512. And thanks for doing that.

-The big SX Soundcheck Saturday party tonight at Hotel Vegas and The Volstead, 1500 E. 6th St., starring Golden Dawn Arkestra, Calliope Musicals, Löwin, Belcurve and more.

-Awaken the beast. Yeast by Sweet Beast continues tonight at Elysium, 705 Red River, featuring Book of Shadows, Many Birthdays, Ouiness and more.
