The show starts at 7pm with Austin’s own Invisible Target (at 7pm), followed by and the Greatest of These (8pm), followed by veterans from last year’s showcase Victory Records and Houston’s own Before There Was Rosalyn (9pm), The Famine is next at 10pm, followed by Firstborn from the Dead (11pm), a midnight show by Houston’s The Shiny Darks and Austin’s own The Brigade at 1am.

I’m told that at 10 pm that all minors will have to leave, which is a bummer, due to curfew laws in Austin’s entertainment district. NO SXSW WRISTBANDS/BADGES/ATTITUDES needed!

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
