For the last several years, Waterloo Records’ parking lot parties have been a favorite South by Southwest attraction for local music lovers who want to catch some great tunes without going full in on for a music wristband or badge. This year the iconic record store will once again host four days of parties, featuring a variety of artists including indie rock faves Spoon, early alternative music artists Robyn Hitchcock and Modern English and L.A. rock outfit Chicano Batman.
