McAlister Drive - Hands In Your Pockets
at SxSW 2010 by Michael Basu
Fueled on the success of their most recent album and a string of successful live dates around the country, McAlister Drive are starting off the year strong. The band worked extensively through the winter on a series of new tracks and this show in Austin will allow the band the opportunity to perform them before a large new audience. Those songs will be appearing on a series of 3 upcoming EP albums - all set for a 2011 release.
We expect the band's eclectic sound to shine through in Texas. McAlister Drive is a Rock Band for people who like Blues, Soul, and Pop. They have made their reputation for scalding live performances. Led by songwriter Christoph Krey, MD will be featured at the 2011 Canadian Music Week, the historic Boston Harborfest, and will finally live their return to the Crescent City for the French Quarter Music Festival. That date will be something of a homecoming, as McAlister Drive - who now reside in Boston, got their start on the streets of New Orleans. We are delighted to have them with us this year in Austin.
