Dave Grohl isn't just delivering a keynote at South By Southwest on March 14. The rocker is bringing an all-star concert to Austin that same evening with an exclusive show, "Sound City Players at SXSW," at Stubb's. The concert will be in support of the "Sound City" documentary and its accompanying soundtrack, "Sound City: Real To Reel," which will be released two days prior on March 12. The event is presented by Citi Private Pass and Billboard is the exclusive media partner. New York-based agency MAC Presents brokered the deal.
The Austin jam session is the latest in a series of performances this year that began at Sundance, with Citi sponsoring additional events in Los Angeles and New York. Confirmed performers include Grohl, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen, Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour, Chris Goss of Masters of Reality and Alain Johannes. The Meat Puppets will be the opening act.
