SXSW is a fun, but pricey excursion to Austin, Texas. Fortunately, Kansas City and Lawrence have been helping bring a piece of the festival right to the Midwest’s backyards.
Our oft partners and crime, I Heart Local Music, have put together a two-night local bill to not only bring a taste of SXSW to those sticking around Kansas, but to help those bands and press members wanting to go to the fest get there. This fundraiser show is scheduled for Friday, February 22, and Saturday, February 23, at the Jackpot in Lawrence. The fundraiser double night is only $5 to attend.
Here’s the lineup:
Friday, February 22:
Saturday, February 23:
Up The Academy
Helping keep the price affordable are Lawrence businesses Jimmy John’s, Mass Street Music, KJHK 90.7 FM, and Blue Collar Press, and the Jackpot.
