Family Music Meltdown in Austin on March 14 & 15

Do you want to be part of SXSW week, but don’t want to leave your kids out of it? Head to Austin next week for the Family Music Meltdown, two lunchtime showcases on March 14 and 15 at the Tamale House East, 1701 E. 6th St., Austin.

Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Joe McDermott (Austin), Laura Freeman (Austin), the Deedle Deedle Dees (Brooklyn), and Lake Street Dive (New England)

Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.: Jad Fair, Mr. Leebot (Austin), Haley Bonar (Minneapolis), Sugar Free Allstars (Oklahoma City), and an encore from the Deedle Deedle Dees

My law school buddy Bill recently moved back to Austin, but still masterminds the Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child show on WRSI-FM (Northampton, MA); check the show’s blog for additions to the lineups.
