Several of the artists that record with Seattle’s Critical Sun will be performing in and around Austin this month during SXSW.

This show, which features Furniture Girls, Sightseer, In Cahoots, The Januariez and Rob Marcus.
Elsewhere, the Grizzled Mighty take Durge to Capitol Hill after a short stint on the east-side of the state. Be prepared for some dialed-in awesomeness.
I do not know much about this Hip-Hop duo Fresh Espresso, other than they have the balls to release a single on a vinyl postcard, and how rad is that? Check out their live show Friday at one of the best sounding venues in town. If loud, distorted guitars are your pleasure, head to the Comet for the amazing Kinski with the Unnatural Helpers.
Turntable Hip-Hop, fresh lyrics, EP release party and a guest appearance from Urban Seeds ! If you are anywhere else on Saturday you probably should check(1,2 1,2) your priorities.
Georgetown brings horns and traditional ska to Ballard.
