According to WOXY.com, the Future of Rock n' Roll lies in the Lone Star State. The alternative/freeform Cincinnati-based radio station recently announced its plans to move down to Austin, home of SXSW, BBQs and (sometimes) ironically worn cowboy attire. In a recent post on their home page, WOXY discussed their reasons for making the switch:
"Every March for the past 3 years, we've headed south to Austin, Texas, for the SXSW Music Festival. We set up camp at EAR Studios in East Austin, rounded up some of the best up-and-coming bands we could find, and broadcast 20+ live WOXY Lounge Act sessions over the course of the week. With such great access to the artists that make these Lounge Act sessions so special, we thought why not broadcast from "The Live Music Capital of the World" full-time?"
Also included in the move will be live HD video recordings of WOXY's Lounge Acts, where up-and-comers are invited to play a live set over the air. WOXY will begin broadcasting from Austin on September 8, 2009. [WOXY]
