“Orange Is In” to perform at SXSW
Our resident house band, Orange Is In, will plug in and play at Guero’s Taco Bar, 1412 S. Congress, this Saturday, March 21 at 1:30 p.m. This is one of those *free* day parties that are being thrown all over town. In other words, you don’t need one of those funny SXSW badges to get in. The showcase was put together by Pete Lippincott, leader of the band Pete Simple, who will also be playing at 6:45 p.m.
According to my partner on this blog, the day parties are a hell of a lot more fun than the official SXSW showcases and South Congress apparently is the place to be. Right down the street from Guero’s (which I’m told has great tacos) is Jo’s Coffee Shop (Alejandro Escovedo will be playing this venue on Friday night), an ice cream place and a pizza joint, all with live bands. The legendary Continental Club is also right next door and will also be throwing a day party featuring Mojo Nixon and pancakes.
So if you’re in Austin on Saturday, come by and say hello. The boys from Orange Is In would love to say hello and share a taco or ten.
