Bradenton's HGWT to play SXSW pre-party in Austin, Tex.

Bradenton alt-country ensemble Have Gun, Will Travel has again been chosen by The Bay Area Arts and Music Organization (BAAMO) to represent Tampa Bay at the 8th Annual Florida Bandango in Austin, Tex., on March 16, 2011.

Florida Bandango is an unofficial showcase held on the first afternoon of the world-famous South-By-Southwest Music Conference (SXSW).

The Bandango acts will perform for gas money at:

BAAMO's Sixth Annual "One for the Road" show: 
7 p.m. Feb. 26 Dave's Aqua Lounge, 10820 Gandy Boulevard, St. Petersburg,
$10 suggested donation.

HGWT will be joined at Dave's by Ronny Elliott, Rebekah Pulley & the Reluctant Prophets, Poetry 'N Lotion, The Beauvilles, and The Human Condition.

HGWT recently released its first music video for the song "Salad Days" (see below) featured on the band's most recent full-length release, "Postcards from the Friendly City," which was the third-most played album on WMNF 88.5 FM in 2010.

The release of "Postcards from the Friendly City" helped HGWT secure national distribution through Denver-based indie label Suburban Home Records. The album recently debuted at 72 on the CMJ Radio Top 200 and moved to 56 within three weeks on the chart.

HGWT will be appearing at Tinderbox Music's Anniversary Party on March 17 (location TBA) during the SXSW Music Conference.
