Annuals is a band that is no stranger to coverage on our little website. We saw them during Fun Fest, have covered some of their other live work, and even had the chance to catch them in town a month ago. The band will be returning to town during SXSW and they are not an act you would want to miss out on. Follow the jump to read a short interview with Adam from Annuals, see some SXSW dates and grab a song.
The week/weekend before SXSW is usually pretty bland for live music, but a few locals have put together a nice little festival going down this weekend. Over the weekend, if you’re not resting up for next week, you should make it out to the new Radio Room (map) for the 2nd annual Psych Fest. The lineup for the weekend events is pretty impressive with big names like Black Angels, Strange Boys, Dead Meadow, Shapes Have Fangs, A Place to Bury Strangers, and tons more. Tickets for the event are on sale now and are going for $45 for a 3 day pass and $15 for individual day tickets. Music starts at 9pm on Friday and 1pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Check out the official website for full schedule and band info or have a look at that trippy flier.[audio: http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/the_black_angels_-_young_men_dead.mp3]
