It’s that time of year: Bands across Chicago are packing their bags and checking their transmissions for the annual 20 hour+ road trip to Austin’s SXSW music festival. And we at the Hideout are happy to see them go …
Wait! We don’t mean it like that!
We mean: tomorrow, Saturday, March 12, we team up with Threadless and Miller Lite to host our fifth annual SXSW Send-off Party! For $10 you get a whole day of music from Texas-bound bands like Chaperone, Joan of Arc, Skull Orchard, Rabble Rabble, the Waco Brothers, and many more. All proceeds go to keep these hardworking musicians fueled with gas and Doritos for the long drive south. No advance tickets – only at the door.
Festivities kick off at 3pm, and proceed in this order:
Joan of arc
Kids these days
