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.

Red Yarn and JareBear

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

Ms. Kat and SaulPaul

  1. No Family Music Meltdown this year? 🙁

      Unfortunately, we aren’t back at Pan Am Park this year. I hope to get back there again sometime in the future; I loved that event.

  2. We loved it too! Thanks for doing it in the past. We’ve loved going to it since the Thinkery!
