Now here’s one for the music fans – 2 tone ska legend The Specials are playing SXSW in March. News on their website on the US tour says:
The Specials will start the first leg of their 2013 USA tour in March. Starting in Chicago the tour will route through Austin, Texas with two confirmed dates at the huge South by South West Festival of Music and Film on March 13th and 15th. Followed by shows on the West Coast. Dates and Venues will be posted soon on this website.
You can start the speculation on where they;re going to play on the Wednesday and the Friday night, but part of me is wondering who they’ll be sharing the bill with, because that’s going to be one fantastic slice of music! SXSW may be mostly new bands, but its always good to get an hour or two with some of the masters.
