Houston At SXSW: Where & When The Bayou City Invades

Categories: SXSW

blackcongress mar15.jpg
In the coming week, legions of Houstonians will trek northwest to descend upon the city of Austin, blessing it with our mere presence during the madhouse that is SXSW. Heck, some of Houston is already there.

Our delegation is not limited to SXSW attendees, however. A host of Houston bands, rappers, DJs and other acts will strut their stuff in showcases both official and unofficial. For those people looking to catch a Houston act - whether that's to see a familiar face, lend some hometown support, or show off to some friends not fortunate enough to abide in our fair city - here's a list of who's playing, where, and when.

Note to artists: if your show isn't here, leave it in the comments and we'll add it. We asked a lot and tried to catch everything, but if we missed your shows we're sorry.

* - Official SXSW Showcase; may be badge/wristband only
