Whiskey Shivers (11:15am, Austin Ventures stage)

Barefoot quintet raises hell, glasses, and your spirits with their good-natured thrashgrass.

The heroic, mid-Eighties guitar rock mothership of Austin legends Jon Dee Graham and Alejandro Escovedo reunited last year in the wake of SXSW Creative Director Brent Grulke's death.

Tri-note finger-picking, suitcase-stomping, one-man band melts hearts and tells strange stories.

Bright Light Social Hour (7pm, Austin Ventures stage)
