South By San Anto: Catch These SXSW Acts on the Home Front

OK y’all, we’re about to be in the thick of it. South By Southwest looms, and with it will come the “spillover” shows, giving concert-goers the opportunity to check out amazing national and international talent without actually having to venture up I-35 and directly into the belly of the beast (If you’ve ever been caught in SXSW traffic, you know what I’m talking about).

To save on gas and the $1,300 wrist-band (cheese and crackers Batman, that’s a lot), we’ve compiled a list of shows featuring official SXSW artists that are happening right here in the Alamo city. Don’t let FOMO get the best of you, and peep these shows that are happening right in your backyard.
