March 9, 2009

We're feeling good about our annual migration south of the Canadian border to SXSW. In March, we will be ditching the woolly mittens, packing our sunglasses, slathering on the sunscreen and getting in some quality time with new (and old) friends. We've got two parties planned this year. The Evaporators, Hot Panda, Immaculate Machine, The Pack A.D., the Handsome Family and our friend Jill Barber will be playing our evening showcase on Saturday, March 21st at Habanna Calle 6.And, for our annual afternoon Hootenanny on Thursday, March 19th at Headhunters, come build your own tacos, bask in the sunshine and enjoy some music courtesy of  Hot Panda, Immaculate Machine, The Pack AD, Thee Goblins (aka: Nardwuar), Gentleman Reg, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, The Handsome Family and win great prizes courtesy of Mint, Daisy Rock Guitars and Six Cent Press.
