Among the most anticipated "unofficial" day parties at music-industry behemoth South by Southwest is the annual Athens in Austin event, presented by the Georgia Theatre and a host of other Athens businesses, including Flagpole.
Performing artists include The B-52s' Cindy Wilson—who just dropped a slinky, synth-y surprise EP, which you can stream below—as well as locals Muuy Biien, Oak House, Mothers, Thayer Sarrano, Eureka California, Chief Scout and more. Out-of-towners—or honorary Athenians—playing include The Dexateens, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires and The Nude Party.
The concert is free, though capacity is limited, so get there early!
