Next week we’ll be on our way to the 2012 South-by-Southwest Music Conference in Austin, TX, where we’ll be performing several showcases for all the music industry folks, as well as for music fans from around the world who come to see this overwhelming onslaught of short live shows. This will be HISB’s first visit to SXSW, and we’ve got a really nice lineup of events to tell y’all about, so read on….and be sure to click on the names of each event to link to all the info regarding the event.
Thursday March 16 @ 6pm — Do512 Lounge Sessions — presented by Shiner Bock
The Do512 Lounge is a retro-lounge/performance space in a funky compound in South Austin. It has the the feel of an exclusive speakeasy, incredible sound, and the perfect ambiance to bring out the best performances of the artists, and unforgettable memories for the lucky guests.
The Sahara Lounge is an awesome intimate east side venue with ample free parking. From downtown Austin, take 12th street east to Webberville Rd. – turn left. Venue on right side. HISB’s set starts at 9:15pm — also performing that evening at The Sahara will be our friends Robert Walter & Reed Mathis, Matt Hubbard Band w/Brad Houser & Robb Kidd, and a SUPER SECRET MYSTERY BAND…
Our last event in Austin will have something no other SXSW showcase event will have — an honest-to-goodness real New Orleans-style CRAWFISH BOIL! We’ll be playing in the early part of the afternoon, but the event goes on throughout the day and night, including performances by The Revivalists, Sun Hotel, Matt Hubbard Band, and Robert Walter & Reed Mathis. So come early for the crawfish….they start dropping on the newspaper-covered tables at high noon….and stay late for the music…
