This week Bloodshot Records will make its 24th SXSW excursion (in our 25th year!) to Austin! We're throwin' a near-record NINE (9!) of our best and brightest (and loudest) bands into the ol' Bloodshot hearse to perform at our annual showcase and day party, as well as a gully of other events around Austin.
The main events include an Official Showcase on the night of Wednesday, March 13th at Continental Club, and the perpetually raucous–and, as far as we know, longest-standing SXSW day party–Yard Dog Party on Friday, March 15th at the Yard Dog Gallery.
