SXSW: Waterloo Records to host free shows with Andrew W.K., Dashboard Confessional, more

[This has been updated to fill in two Saturday slots that were TBA.]

As they have in recent years, Waterloo Records will host free parking lot parties for four days during the South by Southwest Music Festival. The parties run from noon to 7 p.m. daily and are free and open to the public. Headliners include reunited Austin outfit And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, Canadian folk outfit the Weather Station and rock’s loose cannon Andrew W.K.

Other highlights include dance pop dynamo Shamir, buzzy up-and-comer Lucy Dacus and rockers Dashboard Confessional. We’re also happy to see Spanish garage rock outfit Hinds and former Austin360 Artist of the Month Melat in the mix.
