Sending the Four-Star City to the Lone Star State

South by Southwest gets going in Austin later this week, and those in attendance will see some real talent this year from Chicago. If you can't make the trip down south, be sure to stop by The Hideout this Saturday to help make sure that the artists can. Beginning at Noon, bands take to the stage and will continue on for the following 15 hours. In total, 18 bands will perform, and all of the proceeds will be divided up equally between them to help cover transportation costs to the festival. So your $10 admission is really going to a good cause. Like charity, so you can feel good about yourself while you down PBRs. SXSW is sure to bring national attention to these acts, so this is your last chance to be able to say you've seen them back when...
