Music minute: Joe King Carrasco and the Original Crowns

Posted 7:58am on Wednesday, Mar. 07, 2012

South by Southwest is responsible for the vast majority of the music being made in North Texas this weekend. Joe King Carrasco and the Original Crowns are no exception -- the Austin legends will be making a stop at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff at 8 p.m. Saturday. Featuring Arlington Heights grad Kris Cummings on organ, Carrasco and his bandmates will be taking their patented brand of "Tex-Mex New Wave" back home for a series of SXSW gigs. With Jitterbug Vipers. Tickets are $15.

If you want another taste of the Austin madness, swing by Magnolia Motor Lounge at 8 p.m. Monday. There, you'll find a pair of Fort Worth bands -- Calhoun and the Quaker City Night Hawks -- alongside a mix of national acts en route to SXSW: Lera Lynn, Jenny O. (who has drafted the Night Hawks as her backing band for SXSW) and Black Taxi. A cool five bucks gets you in the door.
