Unless I’m reading this wrong, it looks like the annual DC Does Texas SXSW show, which usually goes down on the Wednesday of SXSW, isn’t happening this year. Well, let me amend that… it’s not happening in Austin this year (or on a Wednesday).
Rather, there’s going to be a DC Does Texas “SXSW send-off” party in Alexandria, VA this Friday night. The show will take place at the Austin Grill in Old Town (801 King St.), and will feature:
10:15pm: The Beanstalk Library
11:00pm: Deleted Scenes
11:45pm: Middle Distance Runner
Honestly, this is a damn legit lineup for a show at, err, the Austin Grill. The show costs just $5 and it’s all ages, so jump on the Metro and head down to Old Town this Friday night.
Oh, and if you’re not in the mood for Mexican food, get down there a little early and check out Eamonn’s Dublin Chipper. Some of the best Dublin-style fish and chips that I’ve ever had outside of, well, Dublin.
Edited to add: I should be clear and say that I have no real confirmation that the DC Does Texas show isn’t also happening in Austin this year. I just haven’t heard anything, and the people I know who would probably know about these things haven’t heard any news. Let’s hope I’m wrong, though!
