Hold Steady Ra Ra Riot, the Thermals, and New York Dolls to Play Rachel Ray’s SXSW Party

    Last year at SXSW, Rachel Ray threw a party that featured the likes of Holy Fuck, the Raveonettes and others. This year, things are going to be bigger and better at Ray’s party–namely the lineup, which has been officially announced as featuring the Hold Steady, Ra Ra Riot, the Thermals, the New York Dolls, and the Airborne Toxic Event.


    Of course, the party will feature a lot of food (seven layer sliders!), and also a nepotistic set from Ray’s husband’s band the Cringe. The party goes down on March 21 at Maggie Mae’s, from noon until around 5 p.m. [Pitchfork]
