Texas is known for their yummy food, so we thought we'd be hospitable and bring the fine folks of Austin a tasty biscuit!!!
Our annual SXSW showcase is always one of the biggest highlights of the festival, and this promises to be no different with such a diverse and divalicious lineup that also includes Tove Lo, The Ting Tings, Clear Bandit, Jess Glynne and Elle King!
We love us some Elle King - LOTS!!!
We had her perform at our CMJ Festival party in 2012. We had her perform at our birthday party in 2013. She just released her brilliant debut album and we are so happy and proud to have her perform at our biggest party of them all - our 8th annual One Night in Austin SXSW showcase.
Elle will be joining Tove Lo, The Ting Tings, Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne on our most awesome lineup!!!
The party is on Saturday, March 21st at the Austin Music hall and will benefit the Vh1 Save The Music Foundation.
The only way to guarantee admission is to buy tickets!
