Roxy is gearing up to take over SXSW in a mere matter of days…we’re excited that one of the stars of AUSTINROX, BARCELONA wanted to say a few words! Thanks to Brian Fennell (keys/lead vocals) for contributing – reminder, DM @theroxy to RSVP or hit us up at

We are honored to be a part of the Roxy’s second annual SXSW showcase. We were able to play the Roxy on Sunset last October and we are excited to experience some of that west coast flavor in the heart of Texas. Last year’s SXSW was our first, and a little overwhelming. We only played two showcases, and only one was expected. There were so many bands, or people who looked like they should be in bands, and so much stimulation. However, we were able to take it all in and come back this year a bit more prepared and under different circumstances. We signed with Universal Motown Records this past December and our record is coming out on April 28th. This year, we are playing four showcases in Austin, including Roxy’s, and cannot wait to have tons of mini-reunions with bands we have developed friendships with over the years. We are pleased to have a new record coming out soon and using Roxy’s stage as a platform for promoting it!
