My Picks for March 17-21 in Austin

OK.. there's a lot of music to be seen this week in Austin. Here's my picks (these are the shows I'm supporting as owner of INsite Magazine). With the exception of ShamRockfest (the first one) they are all free... but if you're a lover of hard rock/metal you'll want to be at ShamRockfest as well. I realize there's a BUNCH of great shows going on... You can read the March 2010 INsite to get bios of a bunch of the Texas Rockfest bands. Other than that, my favorite resource for free shows for the last few years has been the New Music Tipsheet who release a FREE LIST every year - here (in PDF)

So.... Here you go:

Sean's March 17-21 Live Music Picks

March 17
SHAMROCK FEST - $12 in advance / $15 at gate ($20 for minors)

Texas Shamrockfest

Yes.. it's the only show I'm touting that is not free... but if you were ever a fan of Agony Column, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns, or George Lynch... it's worth it... and the supporting acts (including One-Eyed Doll, Broken Teeth, Street Light Suzie, Razr 13, Trashy & The Kid) make it totally worth the cover. (Please join me in chanting *rain rain go away* for this one).
