Evolve Media’s CraveOnline Media (, the #1 online male lifestyle publisher, announced today the second annual CraveOnline Music Showcase, hosted in partnership with Swinghouse Studios. Located in the heart of the city, at Rusty’s Austin, the free showcase will be held on Wednesday, March 12 from 8pm – 2am.

With three separate bars and stages, guests will be fully immersed by music, artists, and taste-makers surrounding the festival. Confirmed performers include Semi Precious Weapons, The Silent Comedy, Miniature Tigers, Queen Caveat, Super Water Sympathy, Emily Danger, The Montauk Project, Danny Malone, Memoir, and Bugs in the Dark.

Semi Precious Weapons recently released the four-song Aviation EP, their first set of new music in nearly four years, ahead of the forthcoming full-length studio album Aviation (RedZone Records) to be released on April 22. Produced by Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum, mega-hit maker, "Tricky" Stewart (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Frank Ocean), Aviation seamlessly blends the band's dance punk and “future now rock” approach with Tricky's powerful pop and urban-influenced production to create an evolution of sound.

“Considering the enormous success of last year’s event, there was no question as to whether the CraveOnline Music Showcase would be back in Austin,” says John Keefer, General Manager of CraveOnline Media and Vice President of Evolve Media. “Through events, video series, and content coverage, CraveOnline continues to make music a high priority—which is why we’re hosting this free event for fans and readers. With this year’s strong line-up, we are certain the community is in for another amazing experience.”   

Guests can RSVP to view videos of Semi-Precious Weapons and the additional musicians on the lineup.
