Wild Flag in San Francisco last November

If you're one of the lucky few heading to Austin in three weeks, it would behoove you to make an appearance at the 2011 Village Voice SXSW party, presented in concert with Frank 151. Who's going to be there? The Wu-Tang Clan, Fishbone, Yelawolf, Trae Tha Truth, Marx Lovejoy, Rocky Business, Trouble Andrew, Wild Flag and Ume, plus a DJ set from Erykah Badu. That's a pretty stellar lineup, no matter what your musical taste may be.
While we're pretty sure Wild Flag (Sleater-Kinney's latest incarnation) will melt your face off, it's possible that this may be your only chance to see the Wu-Tang all perform together in an intimate venue and not have to wait for hours for their set to begin.
Austin Music Hall. Thurs., March 17, 5 p.m.-2 a.m. All ages.
