Known as one of the most popular (and free) music events during the SXSW music conference, the shows are packed with up and coming critically acclaimed buzz bands and well-known and established artists, including: Mike Watt (The Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Iggy Pop and The Stooges), The Baseball Project (Steve Wynn, plus members from both REM and Young Fresh Fellows), Eddie Spaghetti (The Supersuckers), Jon Langford (The Mekons, The Waco Bros), The Fleshtones, Jimmy Gnecco (from OURS), Supercluster (Vanessa from Pylon), The Bluebonnets (Kathy from The GoGo's), and many other notables.
TargetCancer, no stranger to bringing attention to their cause through music, launched "The Right Track: Tunes To TargetCancer," a series of concerts, events, and music download opportunities in February 2010. Artists such as Weezer, Ween, The Donnas, Cowboy Junkies, Dean & Britta, Buffalo Tom, Linda Thompson, Los Straightjackets, Sondre Lerche, Drug Rug and many more have contributed exclusive, new and unreleased tracks to "The Right Track." New songs continue to be added to these exclusive pay-what-you-wish downloads. For more information or to purchase tracks, visit: www.righttracktunes.org
In addition to TargetCancer, Q-Division, Inked Magazine, Strike 3 Foundation, and others join Dogfish Brewery and Austin 360 to bring this amazing event to Austin's best local beer bar. The event will run from Thursday March 17- Saturday March 19 from 1:00pm to 1:00am each day. For the full line-up and details for The Industry of Music event, click here.
ABOUT TARGETCANCER/THE RIGHT TRACK: TUNES TO TARGETCANCER:
Launched in 2009 by Cambridge, MA resident Paul Poth, TargetCancer promotes the development of lifesaving treatment protocols for uncommon cancers. Through fundraising, outreach, and advocacy, TargetCancer supports cancer patients while also funding research initiatives at the forefront of cancer treatment - efforts that treat the individual as well as the disease.
When Paul, a dedicated husband, new father and a lawyer with a passion for public service was diagnosed with hepatobiliary duct cancer, an extremely rare form of cancer, he quickly learned that there was no real insight into the disease or the treatments. Due to lack of funds and research, Paul seemingly had no choice but to go along with his doctors' plans to patchwork together treatments for other forms of cancers.
Sadly, Paul lost his battle with cancer, but he knew treatment for rare cancers does not have to be this way. After Paul's passing, his wife, friends and family continued TargetCancer, in honor and celebration of Paul.
