Austin Bergstrom Int’l Airport celebrates SXSW

The annual music, film and interactive conference known as South by Southwest – SXSW – is underway in Austin and it’s so cool that the festivities begin the moment you get off the plane at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

During a ‘normal’ week, the airport offers 23 live music performances at six different venues in the airport. This week the shows include several special showcase events for SXSW.

On Tuesday, March 11, the Warren Hood Bad (Jazz/Blues/Newsgrass) will play from 1 to 3 pm

And the Lost & Nameless Orchestra, which plays “fiddle-driven folk rock, will entertain travelers from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.

and Mingo Fishtrap (soul and funk) will be on duty from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
