Well, it’s official. SXSW is canceled. However, the unofficial shows are still on and there are tons of bands in town looking for gigs. We’ll be updating the calendar as we hear about all the new dark and alternative shows.
You can see our picks for the week below, but we are very excited to see the Independents! For those of you into metal you have a tough choice to make. Today Is The Day and Ignitor are both playing on Friday. Ignitor’s new album is pretty good, so we are leaning that way. Dirty Dog’s annual Dirty Fest starts Friday and runs through Mar 22 and features a ton of independent metal and punk bands. Hit them up if you want to discover new music.
