Yet another local booking company gives a reason not to shell out $750 for a music festival badge.
Local booking maestro Parade of Flesh and Hot Springs, Arkansas's Ballistic Missile have teamed up to create a free day party in Austin Saturday, March 20, in the midst of SXSW festivities. The party brings DD/MM/YYYY, Munch Munch, Juarez, Chinese Stars, True Widow and many more to Club Primos (1700 E. 6th St.).
The two-stage affair is free and requires no badge, wristband or RSVP. Best of all, the event is being announced with refreshing humility: "Two ingenious independent bookers join forces to create the most diverse and momentous line-up..." begins the press release touting the party.
