Hello all! It’s 2012 and we here at Chorizo Approved are gearing up for SXSW again! We have THREE events planned for this year.
The first is taking place at Bookwoman Bookstore (located at 5501 North Lamar Blvd. #A-105, 78751) on Thursday, March 15th from 6pm -8pm. This show will showcase the talents of independent musician and author, Audrey Ryan, who has recently published a book entitled, The Need To Be Heard. The book is ” for and about DIY (“Do It Yourself”) musicians- those artists who do not have big support teams that consist of labels, managers, and lawyers. It is the story of a variety of artists, both known and unknown, all united by a burning desire to be heard.” Audrey Ryan will be playing a set of music as well as talking about the book. We also have very special guest opener, Chrissy Flatt (featuring Eric Hisaw) performing a set of music as well. This is not to be missed. It is free to the public and byob.
