We're very excited about the upcoming SXSW Public Radio Rocks showcase, broadcast live on FUV this Friday at noon, and as a harbinger of good things to come, on TAS on FUV tonight at 10, some of the artists and bands making an impact in Austin this week, like Temples, Pins and Eagulls. Since Damon Albarn is headlining Public Radio Rocks, we'll have a Shuffle from Blur, plus more great music from Lo-Fang, Cloud Nothings, Joanna Gruesome, The Replacements and more.
Russ Borris is working down at SXSW this week, but I'll be filling in for him for the balance of the week. Check in with WFUV, on air and online, throughout the week for updates from Austin, Texas from Russ and Rita Houston. We're taking you to Austin, saving you the hassle of badges, expensive hotel rooms, long lines, packed venues and overpriced tacos.
