The start of a new year usually brings a flood of tour date announcements from publicists. We received a few of those emails today, many of which had dates that included Austin during SXSW week. Here’s the latest list of bands that you can expect to see at SXSW:
- Hotel Cafe tour featuring Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Cary Brothers, Joshua Radin, Dan Wilson (ex-Semisonic), Meiko, Priscilla Ahn, Kate Havnevik, William Fitzsimmons, Jessie Baylin, and Jim Bianco – March 13 @ The Parish
- LA-based Radar Bros. whose new album, Auditorium, will be released on Merge Records later this month. Check out “Warm Rising Sons” (MP3) from that album.
- Canada’s Born Ruffians
- Also, got an email from Todd of Model/Actress saying his band would be making the rounds this year. Here’s the band description from MySpace: EX-MEMBERS OF BRAINIAC + BULLET LAVOLTA + CHAMBERLAIN + GOBBLEHOOF = this fine collective with little ambition and even fewer redeeming qualities. Special guests on the debut EP in DAVID YOW (Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid) and JOHN SCHMERSAL (Enon, Brainiac).
