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?
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
