IODA SXSW Opening Day Bash @ Red Eyed Fly on 3/14
IODA SXSW Showcase @ Red Eyed Fly - 3/14/2012

Happy February 1st! A little more than a month out from SXSW 2012, it still feels early to talk about all of the many goings-on at South By for 2012 - but IODA (Independent Online Distribution Alliance) has announced their 8th annual opening day showcase (RSVP here), and released an mp3 sampler as a preview to the event (featuring tracks by The Wedding Present, Thee Oh Sees (who play 35 Denton right before this), Polica and many others). This year's IODA kickoff to SXSW Music will be at The Red Eyed Fly on March 14th.

Full details and mp3 sampler link below...
