We're currently processing about three truckloads of data for Austin's annual "SXSW" festival. Consider this a work in progress and individual club appearances for the March festival will start appearing in the Pollstar.com touring database during the next few hours. There are so many bands and artists appearing at this even that mentioning a few names would hardly do it justice. So keep checking back and search for "SXSW" for more artist / band info.
We have a smattering of new Braille dates for March, April and May. New listings include shows in Albuquerque (New Mexico) and Gary (Indiana), Puyallup (Washington), Auburn (Washington), Eugene (Oregon), Salem (Oregon) and Portland (Oregon) and Boston (Massachusetts).

Stops include Thetford, Kent, Cheshire, Westonbirt, Nottinghamshire, North Yorkshire and Staffordshire.
