"Hooters" is neither local OR something to brag about visiting).

INsite Local Picks - March 18 - 22 The "Third Week IN Austin 2015" - Keeping It Local (and free)

So.. We left early to stand for 4 hours in line to see Jimmy Kimmel Live atThe Long Center for Performing Arts yesterday... and didn't post our recommended shows for the week. 
We had great seats... we obviously knew someone.
But, really... do you REALLY need to have music advice this week? Just head into any nook and cranny within the city limits of Austin and you'll find music.

WARNING: Vans Warped Tour 2015 Line-up Leaks

WARNING: A Full Vans Warped Tour Line Up Poster has been leaked. 

The  legitimacy cannot be confirmed. However, press has been asked not to share it. We were, however able to secure what appears to be an early-stage layout of what Warped Tour '15's poster might look like. 

Again.. we can't confirm anything, but... what a line-up! 

See the poster below:
Did you think we'd REALLY share the information?
No way. Warped Tour is awesome. We can wait until the official announcement.

In all sincerity, if you DO come across what could be an actual version of the 2015 line-up, please don't share it. We just found this poster and thought the world could use a little laugh in the light of the actual tragic news. Hope you were able to smile, and then hope the person who leaked the information is found and will not be involved with anything within promotions or entertainment for a long, long time.

We're looking forward to covering Van's Warped Tour again this year.
Here are our photos from last year's San Antonio show: Link
