SXSW is less than a month away, and this means that the music industry will be descending upon Austin, TX, from March 11 to 16. Vancouver label Mint Records will be getting in on the fun by holding a day party on March 13 at Headhunters (720 Read River).
The free show, which is sponsored by Exclaim!, will run from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and will include seven acts: Mint artists Tough Age, Jay Arner and Pick a Piper, along with label alumnus the Pack A.D., Arbutus Records acts Sean Nicholas Savage and TOPS, and quirky Edmonton pop man Calvin Love.
As a delicious extra incentive, there will be free tacos and other surprises for those who show up early.
