**SXSW Spotlight** The Black And White Years

I saw local band The Black And White Years last month at the Beauty Bar. The place was packed and the band didn't disappoint. I bought the EP, Real! In Color!, after the show and jammed out on the car ride home. Their full-length debut cd was produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads, and will officially be out on February 12th. They have a cd release party planned at Stubbs later this month (Feb. 22) with Ume opening up the show. It's an indoor show and tickets are here for $8. They will also be playing multiple shows during SXSW. I will update if more shows are added.
