Austin Alternative NotSXSW 2014

You can experience great music shows without being surrounded by SXSW hipsters clogging up downtown Austin streets that are covered in corporate slime every March

Launched some years ago by John Conquest – perceptive music writer and editor of Third Coast music magazine – NotSXSW is held each March during the same time SXSW is doing its thing north of Lady Bird Lake. Held in South and East Austin, NotSXSW has the same vibe SXSW had in its early years before the record companies, other corporations and C3 booking turned it into what it is now.

NotSXSW shows by two of my favorite musicians – David Olney and Peelander-Z – are followed by day-to-day recommendations of great music to experience.

All shows are free and – like our NotSXSW iconic slogan proclaims – “You Don’t Need a Stinkin’ Wristband.”

John Conquest founded and guides NotSXSW every March.

Once you experience David and Sergio you will return again and again

Once you experience David and Sergio you will return again and again

I’ve been a Big Fan of David and Sergio for many years. David’s songs really are short stories & his stage presence will blow you away while Sergio’s amazing guitar work complements David’s words so well.

Peelander-Z
In all my decades of experiencing music there is nothing like a Peelander-Z show. You look around and see everyone in the audience with a Big Ass Grin on Their Face from first song to last.

Peelander brings a Big Smile to kids of all ages

For Very Family Friendly the Best Option is Peelander’s annual Mad Tiger Fest Sunday March 16 at Kenny Durham’s Backyard on 11th Street next to Victory Grill from noon to 5pm. About one hundred kids will be in front of the stage admiring the creative craziness of those four adults on stage. Opening for Peelander will be the Octopus Project – Anthrr.p.s. Arts All Stars (NAME) – and the McCallum High School Samba Nights.
