Tired of seeing Facebook posts from friends attending SXSW and missing out on the insanity? Head to Double Happiness on Friday night to check out four acts that easily could be playing multiple showcases on 6th Street in Austin.

Michigan’s Dear Tracks is the odd band out on this otherwise local bill (Spencer Morgan of Psychic Wheels, Sega Genocide and Room & Board), though their dreamy, shoegaze pop is a welcome – and natural – addition.

Dear Tracks recently issued a 4-song EP titled Soft Dreams and released a video for the title track featuring snippets of old home movies from the ’80s interspersed with more current footage of the band.

Doors open at 8, music starts at 9. Double Happiness is advertising this as a FREE show so you can be assured you’ll get more than you paid for!
