If you're one of the lucky ones heading down to Austin, TX for 2014's SXSW festival, you can still support bay area music by wandering a bit beyond festival bounds.
Winners of the 2013 LIVE 105 Not-So-Silent-Night Local Band contest, Fritz Montana, will be bringing their blues-based jam to several Austin clubs, while SF's, Trash Pop Icon's have slated a few clubs, as well. Both acts have multiple performances at multiple time, as well (see below for complete schedules).
The performances are even more significant, as each band braces for the release of brand new material. Fritz Montana will be releasing a 7-song album (which is being mixed, as we speak), in the coming weeks, while The Trash Pop Icon's have a pair of new songs breaking, as well.
Stay tuned for news and review of these aforementioned releases. Meanwhile, check the schedule, with included stages:
