Yesterday, Cincinnati's own You, You’re Awesome performed on WOXY's "Lounge Act" series. WOXY is an independent radio station that began in Cincinnati in the early 1980s and then modified solely to an internet endeavor in 2004. The WOXY folk moved to Austin, Tex., last summer in order to expand their borders along a bigger music highway.
One car. Five people. Eighteen hours. Local band You, You’re Awesome and friends embarked on their maiden voyage to Austin’s South By Southwest music festival around 3 a.m. Sunday morning and arrived Monday night at midnight. Aside from holding keyboards in laps and not being able to see out of the back window of good friend Mike Baker’s Hyundai Elantra Touring, the trip was surprisingly seamless with one exception: Arkansas. It sucks.
