SXSW Shows to Know: KEXP

On our second edition of SXSW Shows to Know, we are featuring a just-released announcement that has us very excited. You heard it here first folks, KEXP will be back at SXSW this year, and they are bringing a wonderful line-up with them. Not only will they be bringing along some exciting acts, but they will also set up HQ in the KRLU/ACL Studios in the Communications building on campus at UT. Take my word for it when I say that you will not want to miss these performances. Not only are the bands great, but the sound is amazing inside the historic studio that has held some of the best live performances ever broadcast on television for the Austin City Limits TV series. We covered some of them last year, and they were easily a highlight of SXSW. The shows will take place on Friday and Saturday of the festival and the line-ups and times are below.
