The airport’s 15th Annual SXSW Airport Showcase kicks off today with Wendy Colonna taking the stage between 1pm and 3pm, and after that it will the blues and soul sounds from Nakia a little later in the afternoon. Let’s just say that if you’re heading into town today that you’ll be treated to a little bit more than the usual airport welcome.
The fun continues tomorrow around the same time with different sets taking place between 1pm and 3pm, and then again between 3:30 and 5:30pm. It’ll be the Warrne Hood Band and the Lost & Nameless Orchestra doing their thing, respectively.
Things settle down during the week, as airport officials figure you’ll be in and around town enjoying all that SXSW has to offer. The live music starts up again towards the end of the week, as they do their best to wish everyone a fond farewell. Musicians hit the stage again on Monday, March 17, but just remember that this is all above and beyond the usual entertainment offered up at the airport.
