SXSW and Tons of Live Shows!

WHAT THE WHAT? We're going to SXSW, ya'll! I'm very thrilled to announce that I got a slot at the Invasion of the GoGirls showcase in Austin. A surprise, indeed. I've never even been to Texas (airport doesn't count), so this is exciting to the max! This kind of news really takes the edge off of this long, cold winter we've been having. Here are the deets:

Friday, March 14, 4:30pm
Austin Java, 1206 Parkway (12th/Lamar)

It's an unofficial showcase, so IT'S FREE and open to the public. There are many other talented ladies playing at this showcase, and you can see the full schedule here!

UPDATE: I've landed a second gig at an unofficial showcase for Jivewired!
Thursday, March 13, 3:45pm
Touché, 417 E. Sixth Street

In hometown Chicago news, a couple months ago some friends and I put together a cover band. We play a lot of Pink Floyd so we go by Lunatics on the Grass! Over the last few weeks we have even added a couple original songs. Lovely Liz has given us a monthly spot to play at Lizards Liquid Lounge the first Friday of every month. So you can hear us every month on the regular! Plus, I've just been playing a lot more recently and have a bunch of shows coming up. Here's the list!

Folk You! at the Horseshoe Saloon
A round robin songwriter night also featuring Larry O. Dean, Sam Lipkin, and Dalice Malice
