This Week in Great Music: 3/12 – 3/18

Oh, hey, now it’s SXSW-time, where most bands abscond to Austin to play about 467 shows a day.  Don’t worry, there are still plenty of things to keep you occupied up here.

I’ll be checking out that singer-songwriter-type lineup at Beat Kitchen on Wednesday, and then absconding south myself,  to go have Deep Thoughts about Andrew Bird in Atlanta and Nashville.
