A SXSW Tip for Friday

I've been planning my SXSW Music days every morning, rummaging through the online schedules and then playing it by ear (no pun intended) as the day and night unfold, always open to break the schedule for something interesting or fun (or in last night's case, influenced by friends who wanted to see Kaki King).

If I wasn't at the Hot Freaks party today, I would definitely attend Alina Simone's 4pm show at the Topple Records party at the Vortex Theatre (2307 Manor Rd) in Austin.

Since her days with New York's Emma La Reina, I have been a huge fan of Alina's music and songwriting, and Billboard agrees (naming her one of the 12 acts to catch at SXSW this year).

This show should be special, it features a full band and Simone will be playing songs from ‘Everyone is Crying Out to Me, Beware,’ an album covering the music of Russian punk-folk legend Yanka Dyagileva.
