Are you getting ready to head down to the sunny climes of Austin, Texas, for that marathon of music, tech and bad decisions known as SXSW? Well, you should stop by the MTV/VH1/CMT Present: “Live in Austin” SXSW showcase. In addition to tons of great tunes brought to you by MTV, VH1 and CMT, the O Music Awards will also be on site with a ton of goodies from Moog, as well as two extremely rad DJs.
The show’s at 7pm on Tuesday, March 12 at The Control Room (Corner of 7th and Red River) in downtown Austin. It’s open to badge holders and the public, so bring your friends. Jim James (of My Morning Jacket fame) headlines, with sets from Guards (who will be jamming on Moog’s 24-karet gold, limited edition 10th Anniversary Minimoog Voyager), ZZ Ward, Elle King, Ashley Monroe and Youngblood Hawke.
The O Music Awards have also enlisted a duo — DJ Breakbot and French Horn Rebellion — of talented musicians to DJ between sets and there will be a ton of instruments from Moog on-hand for the assemblage to jam on.
