South By Southwest is approaching, which means tons of bands will be coming through Memphis on their way to the hell-hole, I mean music festival, down in Austin, Texas. No word yet on whether or not President Obama will be appearing at the Hi-Tone (he's a key note speaker at the festival this year), but we're getting the next best thing, in the form of psych rock, punk and pretty much everything in between. Here are some gigs worth your attention.
