A dozen Columbus bands are traveling to Austin next month to rock alongside the South by Southwest festivities, in hopes of attracting some attention from the glut of music industry contacts who congregate there. Five of those acts - Slick City Ramblers, Andy Shaw Band, Mike Wojniak, Joshua P. James and Dr. Kenny Delicious - will play Kobo on Thursday to raise funds for the trip. Another benefit show is coming March 5.
