  • Don’t know if they’ve confirmed for SxSW yet, but Isle of Man blues trio Back Door Slam are playing in Houston on March 10th (and, incidentally, tonight at Stubb’s). Seems a long way to travel in the middle of March for just Houston. ;) I hope they do come back to SxSW this year – they were fantastic last year, even if I did watch their show from the street.

    Also on the subject of UK bands, I’ve heard The Wombats are making a repeat visit this year, but I don’t have any details yet on showcases or day parties.
