HGTV/Paste SXSW Preview - Lissie
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.

We declared her to be the Best of What’s Next way back in 2010, and we’re thrilled to welcome Lissie back to the Paste party at SXSW once again. The Midwestern singer/songwriter always brings with her a certain heartiness and willingness to dive into her songs full-force—and yes, probably a few stellar covers—that make her live show something not to be missed.
