It’s nearly time for South By Southwest, which means it’s also about time for bands on their way to that music extravaganza to pass through our fair cities.The instrumental rock duo El Ten Eleven, for instance, will stop for a gig Sunday night (March 11) gig at The Lightbulb Club in Fayetteville. Entertainment Weekly magazine said the band “make(s) instrumental rock that’s not boring. I swear.” The show will start after 9 p.m. Admission is $5.

Another band on the way to Austin, Texas is the Heartless Bastards, who performed at George’s Majestic Lounge last night. Check back later today, as I’ll have a review and some photos from that event.

Elsewhere this weekend, Big Smith will invade Chelsea’s Corner Cafe in Eureka Springs on Saturday (March 10) and The Pass returns to Fayetteville on Friday (March 9) for a set at The Lightbulb Club.

Where will you be?
