Quantum Collective Brings Their Southwest Invasion To Austin Yet Again

For the third year in a row, the downtown Whole Foods rooftop offers some stellar free music.

Austin is never wanting for live music options any time of the year, as we all know. However, when South By Southwest comes rolling into town, it seems the floodgates open up, leaving music fans to ponder just who the heck they're going to have time to go see. Today's announcement from music marketing company Quantum Collective will make that planning even more difficult.

For the third year in a row, the company will be showcasing a stellar line-up of well known acts as well as up and coming bands for free on the rooftop of the Whole Foods store downtown. This two day, all ages event will be supporting the Whole Planet Foundation.

The featured acts at this year's showcase include G. Love (of G. Love and the Special Sauce), Suzanne Vega ("Tom's Diner", "My Name Is Luka"), reggae artist Matisyahu and - no, we're not joking - Lisa Marie Presley. The showcase will be running Friday, March 14th and Saturday, March 15th from 10am to 10pm each day.

While Southwest Invasion is free and open to the public, RSVPs are encouraged. You can submit yours, if you so desire, here.
