Speaking of Erykah Badu, it seems the Queen finally has some local musicians to keep her company down in Austin next year when she performs at the annual cluster-you-know-what that is South by Southwest.
After having releasing an early early list last month of scheduled performers, which included Badu, the festival has now added a second list of names to its confirmed-to-play bill, and on it lie two more local names and a third with local ties.
So, who got added to the early-announced SXSW 2011 lineup? Jump with us and we'll let you in on the "secret." (Get it?)
Denton's Bowling for Soup, Dallas' own The Secret Handshake and Austin's Dallas ex-pats in The Strange Boys have all been added to the bill. See the entire list of new adds here.
