Hundreds waited in line outside the W Hotel in Downtown Austin Wednesday for a chance to see some early morning music.
Every year, KGSR hosts a live morning broadcast from the hotel featuring the festival's biggest acts.
Wednesday morning, Delta Rae, Family of the Year and Pickwick took the stage. Siblings were the theme of the morning, both Delta Rae and Family of the Year have related band members.
Delta Rae band member Eric Holljes says performing with his brother and sister is worth it.
“There is a lot of arguing. There is a lot of making up and you have to get on stage and perform,” he said. “It’s fun, it feels very worth it. I can’t imagine making music with anybody else.”
Delta Rae is playing several more shows in town as SXSW moves forward. Click here for more information.
