1/28 SXSW Updates: Rachael Ray Returns w/ Hold Steady + More

Last year we were shocked that Rachael Ray was doing a show at SXSW. Then we were more shocked when we saw it was a solid line-up that featured The Raveonettes, among other bands.

Well, word has come out that Rachael is coming back to SXSW in 2009. According to MTV.com, The Hold Steady are going to be playing it, which is the first time we’ve seen the band attached to the festival this year.

    i went to rachaels book signing in december, she confirmed the party she also confirmed another band and said it would be bigger and better than the last one.

    I am embarrased to admit it, but her party was one of last years highlights! Plenty of great free food, very tasty Mojitos and some decent music to boot. The drink service was incredible… I had waitresses bringing me more drinks before I could finish the last one.

  • Jeff

    If she confirmed another band at her book signing, then why not mention them?
