Waltz Across Texas

As everyone in the modern music world knows, SXSW is this week. If you do not know of these four letters, I think Wikipedia says it best:

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of interactive, film, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas.

Thanks Wiki, to continue, SXSW is now the spring break of the music industry, if you will. With the countless music industry execs, bloggers, journalists, promoters, DJs, it's business & pleasure wrapped into one. and the hot ticket to check out up & coming artists in the industry. YeeHaw.

So, you want the good news or the bad news first? I'll go good. Certainly the Sweetback crew certainly knew of this fest, and it had been a little dream of ours to head to TX, so we couldn't believe our ears when our darling new label Signature Sounds offered us a spot in the showcase this year! Awesome! We were all stoked at the prospect to say the least, but here comes the bad news. Sadly, due to our personal schedules and CD release dates, we thought it best that the Sweetback Sisters sat out this round. Just not the right time to hop on a plane.

All is well though honky-tonk lovers. Our advance release copies of "Chicken Ain't Chicken" made it to Austin with Signature. And we have full intentions on getting the Sweetback Sisters waltzing across Texas in the new future, kickin' T.X. style with boots and bells on.

See you next year Austin,

xo The Sweetback Sisters
