Hold Steady, Thermals, Ra Ra Riot To Play Rachael Ray’s Second SXSW Showcase

As we previously reported, the feisty foodie is returning to Austin this year for her second awkwardly titled (and conceptualized) SXSW showcase: Rose’s Mojito and Rachael Ray’s Feedback: The B-Side. It takes place 3/21 at Maggie Mae’s with the Hold Steady, the New York Dolls (!), Bob Schneider, the Airborne Toxic Event, Ra Ra Riot, Semi Precious Weapons, the Cringe, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, the Thermals and John Pringle(s). We’re told “the day will feature tons of Austin inspired recipes created by Rachael herself [and] signature Mojito cocktails thanks to the title sponsor.” The slogan: “A Smorgasbord Of Hot Bands And Hot Foods.” This clearly does not apply to all the bands, but nobody likes lukewarm food.
