Fresh off celebrating our 20th voyage to SXSW last year, Bloodshot Records is bringin' the grog and hogshead to ye in Austin yet again for SXSW 2016 March 15-19! We'll be flying the Jolly Roger during this special time of year in which many of our bands, fans, followers, friends, cohorts, colleagues, appendages, and hanger-ons are present in one place, to celebrate, at some capacity, the fact that Bloodshot still has a place in the high seas of the scathing but splendid independent music industry. And we get to pillage all the BBQ, tacos, and hooch we can shake a peg leg at (over the course of six days - don't worry - no scurvy this year)...and escape the fickle, fierce wench that is Chicago in March.

And we're dragging these unrelenting Bloodshot artists with us by the bootstraps...potentially against their respective wills...every ship needs a freebootin' crew!

Lydia Loveless
Al Scorch
The Yawpers
Robbie Fulks
Luke Winslow-King
Jon Langford
Banditos
Rosie Flores
...and the undefeated, undisputed champions of SXSW: the Waco Brothers!
