One of my favorite things about South By Southwest each year is discovering bands I previously knew nothing about. I recently was introduced to the music of Austin-based band Black Books, which you can see tonight (Tuesday, 3.15.11) at 9pm in Austin at Skinny’s Ballroom as part of the Knerd.com launch party. The band also plays an official SXSW showcase tomorrow night (Wednesday, 3.16.11) at Dirty Dog Bar at 8:30pm.
The band’s 4-track EP, An Introduction To…, was recently released digitally and on green vinyl.
