Friday, March 11
Kansas sibling duo The Floozies will be hitting the stage at the Scoot Inn this weekend to perform their quirky and colorful music that will get you warmed up for the craziness of South By Southwest’s music conference and festival. With wild and unconventional songs such as “Stuntin’”, The Floozies never leave their fans bored for a minute throughout their entire set, making the band a much talked about act that will gain many new fans.
Capitol One House (SXSW, runs until the 14th)
With SXSW Interactive kicking off this weekend, the Capitol One House (which is taking over formerly defunct blues club Antones) will be providing Interactive attendees with plenty of music throughout the week including San Francisco rockers Third Eye Blind (March 13th) and rapper Common (March 12th) who will be bringing plenty of variety to the Interactive portion of the festival, as music has always been a strong part of Austin’s culture and identity. So if you are a music fan attending SXSW and are looking to get things started a little earlier this year, Capitol One House will definitely leave you satisfied.

Canvas People at Sidewinder
Local act Canvas People will be performing this Friday evening at newly opened club The Sidewinder. Playing songs with a sophisticated indie pop sound that draws us in immediately, Canvas People is a band not to be missed by anyone who lives locally. Check out the track “Happy If I’m Wrong” to see why Canvas People have won our hearts.

Shivery Shakes at The Mohawk
Shivery Shakes is another local band that we can’t listen to enough and if their local popularity is any indication, the rest of Austin can’t stop listening either. Known for their woozy pop tracks that enthrall with every note, Shivery Shakes is a local band that you should certainly check out this weekend.
