The much-anticipated Sound on Sound Fest is fast approaching with festivities starting Nov. 4. To kick off the festival weekend, the Sound On Sound Fest “Late Knights” kick-off parties, or just Knights, will be held at Mohawk, The Sidewinder, Barracuda, Beerland and Empire on Thursday, Nov. 3. Anyone who already has an official Sound On Sound Wristband gets free access to any of the Knights shows and holders of the VIP ‘Treat Thyself’ pass get priority access at each venue.
The artists are seriously killer with a lot of local bands making an appearance. Residual Kid, for instance, is a 3 piece rock band from Austin that has already earned quite a few awards. In 2013, they earned the award of best U18 bands and also landed the title of best punk band in 2015 from The Austin Chronicle.
