Spare the Rock By Southwest 2018

Mar 11

We’re less than a month away from SXSW madness, so I guess it’s time to let y’all know what we’ve got coming up!  It’s going to be another amazing year.  All of my profits from these events will go to organizations working to stop gun violence.

KUTX Live at the Four Seasons

We will again be presenting music for kids and their grownups at the Four Seasons in between the on-the-air sets, and this year we’ll be down in the same area as the main stage (read: we can be louder than last year!).  These shows were ridiculously great last year, and I have guessed one of the main stage acts already, and it’s gonna be so good.

Wednesday, March 14 – family music starts at 8:30

Red Yarn and JareBear

Thursday, March 15 – family music starts at 8:30

Ms. Kat and SaulPaul

Friday, March 16 – family music starts at 8:30

Laura Doherty and 1-2-3 Andres

Saturday, March 17 – family music starts at 9:30

Lucky Diaz & the Family Jam Band and Sugar Free Allstars

Hello Dolly!: A Tribute to Dolly Parton – Friday, March 16, 10:00 am-2:30 pm
