Outlandish OUTlander Lineup

Two venues, five stages, over 40 bands… whoa.

Outlandish OUTlander Lineup

What? A Pride parade, 5k Rainbow Run, Peaches (and about a bazillion other acts), flash mobs, drag contest, Dykes on Bikes, and hungover brunches aren't enough for you?


Austin, you're insatiable.

The OUTlander Music Fest is taking over both Lipstick24 and Rusty's with five stages featuring LGBTQ and allied artists rocking out. All this during Pride weekend (next weekend), September 21-23.

Oh, and it's free. As in completely free. No cover.

This fest is massive, with music ranging from Cuban hip-hop to indie-dance to classic rock to acoustic folk to… you get the idea. Think of this as a "Choose Your Own Adventure" challenge. Get out a pen, 'cause you're gonna need a plan.

God-Des & She: They were at Shane's Bachelor party. The end. The hip-hop/soul duo just finished mixing their fourth record, so put a request in for new anti-bullying song "Never Give Up." Oh yeah, and get your boobs signed.

Patrice Pike: This longtime Austinite is fresh off Burning Man and back in town. Damn. That voice. You're gonna wanna find a make-out buddy for "Hold You." Smooooth.

Eleven:Eleven: Self-described as ElectroDisco, synth pop, and indie dance, the combo of Sicca and J.Childs may be your new fav, get some free downloads.

More Cowbell: "We don't want to be the best band in the world, we just want to be the most fun." This mash-up band will keep you guessing.

Krudas Cubensi: Feminist Cuban hip-hop. It might get wild, and they will definitely be heard.

Grrlz Will Be Boiz: All-girl rockers pump out a classic rock meets funk/roots sound with killer stage presence.

The Awkward Robot: Perfect indie sound, beautiful guitar and lyrics, and a new EP out. If you missed them at Cheer Up Charlie's, don't miss them at OUTlander. Check out "Mary Elizabeth."

Julie Nolen & Telling Stories: Sneaky pick to steal your hearts. Nolen finger-picks indie-folk that you can dance, cuddle, or mellow out to.

Glow in the Sun: San Antonio rock quartet. They're working on a third album that "exudes a funkadelic spirit ride that can’t be denied." Well, dang.

Lisa Marshall: Much-gigged R&B/soul singer that will make you think of Aretha and Janis Joplin, but leave you thinking she's got her own sweet thing going on. Watch for that jumbo electric guitar.

The 7s: "Indie/Alt" is a label that doesn't quite fit the sound and great vocals of these rockers. Currently recording their first album, know them back when.

Kari K.: Acoustic heart-throb. Major crush on this band.

The 7th Squeeze: Check out their "Hit Song."
