Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

In the coming week, legions of Houstonians will trek northwest to descend upon the city of Austin, blessing it with our mere presence during the madhouse that is SXSW. Heck, some of Houston is already there.

Our delegation is not limited to SXSW attendees, however. A host of Houston bands, rappers, DJs and other acts will strut their stuff in showcases both official and unofficial. For those people looking to catch a Houston act - whether that's to see a familiar face, lend some hometown support, or show off to some friends not fortunate enough to abide in our fair city - here's a list of who's playing, where, and when.

Note to artists: if your show isn't here, leave it in the comments and we'll add it. We asked a lot and tried to catch everything, but if we missed your shows we're sorry.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
