On the eve of ACL Fest, we're gonna turn off our laptops, put on our drinking shoes, and head over to the Mohawk, because Austinist is hosting Local Music is Sexy IV.
An annual tradition since its inception in 2005 (back when the 'hawk was the Velvet Spade, and folks were still arguing over the smoking ban), Local Music is Sexy showcases a bunch of promising young Austin bands and DJs that we're most excited about. Past artists have included Belaire, The Black Angels, IV Thieves, and Clap!Clap!
LMIS IV will feature Austinites The Lemurs, The Corto Maltese, and Brazos on the outside main stage, with DJs Car Stereo (Wars) and Markus with a K rockin' dance-party jams inside alongside Magic Surprise. To spice things up, we're also flying in Seattle indie rockers Say Hi To Your Mom to headline, and welcoming our favorite Houston DJ, Ceeplus Bad Knives.
