Upcoming BlueBonnets shows

From KV's mailing-list

Ruby's Stardust Lounge SXSW party  FREE AND OPEN TO PUBLIC
Maria's Taco Express  2529 S. Lamar 78704 
This is a very casual show featuring some of Austin's best performers in the courtyard, outdoors at Maria's Tacos. Each band plays a 30 min set and the changeovers are very quick.  There are tables and chairs but if you don't snag one, there are plenty of places to stand and still see the band.  Kid and food friendly!  
1pm: San Jose Hotel SXSW party FREE AND OPEN TO PUBLIC
This party attracts a crowd fun, cool people with an amazing line up of bands.  It's location makes it a good place to hang for the afternoon because there is so much to do on S. Congress; eat, shop, hear music.  You'll be on your feet but it's a great vibe, and not so crowded to be uncomfortable.  Kid friendly. 
7pm: Austin 360 and Dogfish Head Industry of Music SXSW party FREE AND OPEN TO PUBLIC
Everyone loves the annual party hosted here; organizer Chris manages to put together a show that keeps people staying for hours in anticipation of what's coming onstage next.  Great location to wander downtown!  We take the earlier slot at 7 because the line outside the door gets out of control after that, and we want our friends inside, not standing on the sidewalk! In other words, get over there by 6:30 for your best bet at getting in and comfortable!  Definitely Grown-up friendly!
SUNDAY MARCH 18 at 3:45
Moms Rock; A Showcase Celebrating Motherhood and Music.  FREE AND OPEN TO PUBLIC
Happy Salon and Spa 1605 W. 6th Austin 78703
Sounds like a fun festival type show with door prizes, booths, food, sponsors, etc and several acts who have moms in their line-up! We are playing our longest set; an hour long, and look forward to being a part of this first time ever event. I would think this is extremely kid, even small kid, friendly!!
THURS MARCH 22 at 8pm 
Tickets 12$
The Women of Antone's "For Etta" in memory of the great Etta James
Antone's Nightclub 213 W. 5th St. 78701
An incredible night with Austin music queens Carolyn Wonderland, Marcia Ball, Shelly King, Texas Guitar Women and the BlueBonnets!  We always love playing Antone's on the women's night, proud to share the stage with such inspiring and talent musicians.  Bar, tables, chairs, dancing. ok for kids (mine comes!) but really more of a grown-ups gig
