The 22nd Annual KTRU Outdoor Show has been announced for March 9, and it features Cloud Nothings as headliners, along with B L A C K I E, Fat Tony, Buxton, Teen Daze, Delicate Steve and Featherface.
The event is free, and runs from noon until well into the evening. It is the brainchild of Rice University's student radio station, KTRU.
The mini-festival is continuously one of the brightest spots on the Houston music calendar. Past headliners have included Washed Out, Titus Andronicus, Mister Heavenly, Chairlift, Lower Dens, 120 Days, Ratatat, Treasure Mammal, and a host of locals both active and disbanded.
The show always takes place on the Central Quad of the Rice campus, within walking distance of the rail line, and bike-friendly from the surrounding neighborhoods. You can view a map of the grounds here.
This year the festival will also have local food trucks Bernie's Burger Bus, Good Dog Hot Dogs and Oh My Gogi! on board to feed the masses.
Here are some clips from the 2007 show, which was moved inside due to rain. Show of virtual hands, who was there?
