Show Preview: SXSWfm HAAM Benefit (9/23)

HAAM-poster-final-web-400x400What’s better than a show with a great lineup of locals?  A show with a great lineup of locals all playing for a good cause.  That’s what’s going down on Tuesday at the Palm Door on 6th and we wanted to get the word out as best we can.  The show is free, but 20% of the bar will be donated to HAAM so get your drink on!  You can also donate directly to HAAM onsite or by doing so online here.  Let’s not forget this stacked local lineup featuring The Sour Notes, Otis the Destroyer, Possessed by Paul James, and Residual Kid.  Doors @ 7, music @ 8.  Let’s get it on!

More event information can be found on the SXSWfm site.
