Heartless Bastards: SXSW 2015
Heartless Bastards are fresh off a tour with Bob Seger and back home in Austin, TX, just in time for a world of crazy to show up for SXSW 2015. They're contributing some of their own crazy by playing at Willie Nelson's big annual bash outside of town, and for contrast also doing a kids show during the fest, renamed 'The Heartless Bathtubs' for the occasion.
This should be a big year for singer/guitarist/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom and the band—for one thing, they're celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the release of their debut album, Stairs and Elevators. And according to Twitter in late January, the recording sessions they started in August have resulted in a new finished album.
So I expect to hear some new tunes from them at SXSW, and hope for a finished collection soon. The best way to keep in touch with the band: Twitter.com/heartlessbstrds.
Bonus! A dog on Instagram singing along to one of their songs.
