Among the masses at this year’s South By Southwest, the yearly Austin festival, (the music portion of which ran March 13-18) were several of Cincinnati’s hometown favorites, marking the largest turnout yet for Cincinnati-based bands at SXSW.   

SXSW 2012: Pinstripes Go 'Unofficial' at SXSW

Local Reggae/Ska/Soul band hits Austin for the fans SXSW brings, but not the fest itself

{CommentsCant} · Monday, March 19, 2012
The 2012 SXSW festival has come to an end and it's left us tired, sore and broke. In retrospect it seems like a meager price for a full week of live music, free booze and hanging out in one of the country's coolest cities. But for many bands, it's just another week on the job.

Last night marked the debut for Cincinnati bands at this year's South By Southwest, featured at the Midwest by Southwest showcase. The event was put together by The All Night Party folks at the Soho Lounge d...

After two days of driving in the Vanarama — a 1996 GMC Rally 3500 in school-bus yellow — we're only about 3.5 hours outside of Austin.
