Guess what, faithful readers? SXSW 2019 is on the horizon and this year’s festival is poised to be bigger than ever. As I toil over this year’s Top 15 (see last year’s edition), I’d be remiss if I didn’t recognize the local music happening on the last weekend before the madness starts.
This time around, I recommend chill synth-pop, body-shaking Latin, and calm, quiet indie perfect for a spring evening. If you’re embarking upon the SXSW in 2019, enjoy and do everything you can to listen local! [Read more…]

This time around, we recommend first-class ATX psych-rock, brassy soul/funk, and a rock-and-roll songstress who spits guitar-driven fire. Listen local! [Read more…]
