Who to look out for at SXSW

One of our favorite parts about Austin, Texas is the atmosphere that surrounds it when the 10 day conference, SXSW, rolls around. Whether it’s television, video games or music, everyone at the trade show is listening to a keynote speaker, finding the coolest activation or listening to some of the next up-and-coming bands.

Sure, big names like Cold War Kids and Dashboard Confessional are cool but let us draw your attention to who we have loved so far and who you should have on your radar for the next couple days.

Nathanial Rateliff & the Night Sweats hail from Denver and they have no issue bringing in the crowd at SXSW. The octet features horns, some cooling drums, a smooth guitar, and a soothing yet strong folk voice to carry the music to full. You can catch them on the SXSW Outdoor Stage on Friday, March 16th.


The one man band from California, Cut Chemist, rocked stages all over SXSW. If you’re unfamiliar, Cut Chemist is a hip-hop producer that scratches records to get his deep funk era sound. Having played in Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, we already know that his set is going to be a banger anywhere he plays.

Sometimes you just have to bob your head to some good music. That’s where Daniel Nakamura comes in. With a pretty extensive resume, and under the alias Dan the Automator, he’s collaborated with the Gorillaz and Dr. Octagon and Kool Keith. Unfortunately, he already performed, but that shouldn’t stop you from searching up his vibing hip-hop that’s out there.

Have you been attending SXSW or been keeping up with what’s been happening? Let us know what artists are on your radar this week!

If you’re an artist or band that has played SXSW 2018, we’d love to hook you up with some of the best pizza in Austin! Just send us a DM @brickovenaustin!

Menu Favorites

We always love hearing which menu items excite our customers the most. What about what our favorites are? We have feelings too. If you’re looking to try something different, our suggestions may pleasantly surprise you the next time you come in…

The Southwest Chicken Pizza is perfect if you’re looking for something on the spicier side. This fan-and-house favorite pizza is made with a special chipotle pesto sauce, romano and mozzarella cheese, and roasted chicken. You’ll savor every bite.

Our Pasta Primavera is very well-liked, for obvious reasons. Spaghetti, marinara, and an abundance of fresh vegetables make each bite full of robust flavor… You’re welcome for that.

If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, the Cranberry Gorgonzola Salad is made up of dried cranberries, a variety of greens, candied pecans, and delicious gorgonzola cheese. Who says healthy and delicious can’t go hand-in-hand?

We’ve got the room for your group

Hey y’all guess what? The downtown location is always booking large groups from 20-150 guests.

We can accommodate your high school or college group. We can host you in-house or handle large to go orders and sometimes delivery if you’re at a location near us.

Yes, we’re Longhorns fans first, but we have hosted the Texas Tech basketball team, University of Louisville swim team, University of WV, University of Wisconsin and University of Arizona groups often.

If your college group, team, band or even chorus has an event housed at the UT campus, we’re a great option to keep in mind!
