This Monday, Reyna and Stephanie will have The Sour Notes in the studio! These guys are from Austin, Texas and have a dreamy pop sound and a major D.I.Y. approach to their art–taking care of everything like creating and releasing albums to booking over a hundred shows and going on multiple tours. They’ve played with such acts as Wavves and Daniel Johnston so tune in and see what these guys are about!

Harrison and Anyssa will have The Lennings in the studio on Tuesday. This MR Fest band is a five-piece from Austin that prides itself on “blurring the line between Americana and indie pop.” You can definitely hear what they mean if you listen to some of their tracks–it is an effective blurring. Tune in at 4:30 to find out more about these guys.

Melissa and Shannon will have Sour Bridges in the studio at 4:30! According to their Facebook page, “Sour Bridges play browngrass. It’s like bluegrass, but a little dirtier. Based in Austin, TX, this folk-indie-bluegrass quintet formed in early 2009 and has been kicking up dust and boots ever since.”

After that, we’ll have The Nouns in the studio at 5:30! These guys recently played KTSW’s Lunchbox and will also be playing during MR Fest.

We’re going to be giving away tickets to Cave Singers, who play on Red 7 on April 20th, from Monday until Wednesday so listen in for a chance to win those!

Friday we won’t be airing Other Side Drive but we’ll be back next week with another great week to finish off the semester! As always, keep it tuned to the other side of radio!
