This week on the Chronolog, the Austin Chronicle’s Chase Hoffberger and Kevin Curtin will be previewing Austin bands performing at SXSW 2014 as well as shows you won’t want to miss out on this weekend.
Chase and Kevin will discuss the Austin Music Blogger Awards. Held at Spider House Ballroom February 27th, the event will include lots of award giveaways and performances by some of Austin’s hottest acts like A Giant Dog, Mirror Travel, Orthy, and Magna Carda.
SXSW 2014 showcasing band Mirror Travel, who is performing during the Austin Music Blogger Awards, is nominated for Best Band and Best Album.
Formerly known as Follow That Bird, Mirror Travel delivers a heavy dose of psychedelic rock to the Austin music scene. The cohesive trio is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Lauren Green, bass player Paul Brinkley, and drummer Tiffanie Lanmon. Mirror Travel's debut album Mexico, released in October 2013, is warmly engaging, yet, relaxing.
