The Hideout Announces 2014 SXSW Send-Off Party

By Jon Graef in Arts & Entertainment on Feb 8, 2014 8:00PM

The 27th annual South by Southwest (or SXSW if you're into the whole brevity thing) music conference isn't for another month or so, but that doesn't mean it's too early to start get excited for it/dreading the inevitable discourse about how much better it was back in the day, man.

To the former's end, The Hideout recently announced their 2014 SXSW send-off party, and it's a doozy. On March 8, The Hideout hosts 11 local Chicago bands for an all-day festival that only costs $10.

Amongst the groups playing are local guitar hero Ryley Walker, orchestral post-metal outfit Wrekmeister Harmonies, and psychedelic favorites Outer Minds and Radar Eyes are just but a few of the many talented groups playing. The proceeds from the send-off show go to help the bands get to South-by.

Here's the day's schedule:

1:30 p.m. - Wrekmeister Harmonies
2:30 p.m. - Ryley Walker
3:30 p.m. - Marrow
4:30 p.m. - Basic Cable
5:30 p.m. - Absolutely Not
6:30 p.m. - Jon Langford & Skull Orchard
7:30 p.m. - Bonzie
8:30 p.m. - Bailiff
9:30 p.m. - Outer Minds
10:30 p.m. - Kins
11:30 p.m. - Radar Eyes

Best of luck to all traveling bands.

The Hideout is located at 1354 W Wabansia Ave.
