HGTV has teamed up with Paste for our ninth annual party in Austin, Texas, at SXSW, March 13-16. With 11 bands per day, the lineup includes both some of the festival’s most exciting veteran performers including Billy Bragg, Buddy Miller & Jim Lauderdale, Josh Ritter and The Zombies, as well as newcomers like Foxygen, The Lone Bellow and GUARDS.
The official four-day party will be held at one of 6th Street’s biggest music venues, The Stage on Sixth (508 E. 6th Street), from noon to 6 p.m. In the days leading up to the event, we’ll post previews on the artists on the lineup.

For Fans Of: The Civil Wars, honeyhoney
It’s no secret that we’re excited about what’s to come for Brooklyn trio The Lone Bellow. We’ve already dubbed the band a Best of What’s Next artist, highlighted their debut album as one of our most anticipated of 2013 and subsequently gave the release a top-notch rating. The band was a natural choice for our parties at Stage on Sixth, particularly given their sweet harmonies and foot-stomping choruses. Thanks to their stop at the Paste offices late last year, we can personally attest to their live performance chemistry, too.
