The screening for The Runaways movie at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas has been scheduled:

The Runaways

  • Date: Thursday, March 18, 2010

Here’s another Runaways-related item: The Kim Fowley-produced band The Howlies are also performing at SXSW:

  • Date: Wednesday, March 17, 2010
  • Time: 7:45 PM
  • Location: Galaxy Room

Blackheart Records artist The Dollyrots were originally listed as TBA on the SXSW site, but they are no longer listed so I don’t think they will be there. UPDATE: The Dollyrots are performing Friday, March 19th, at Buffalo Billiards. And so is Girl in a Coma!

Check out The Dollyrots’ tour dates to see where else they are touring.

The Runaways movie has been added to the 2010 South by Southwest Film Festival lineup. It can’t enter any of the competition categories because it has already been shown at Sundance, but all films are eligible for audience awards. Maybe they’ll win one!

I checked out the music lineup for SXSW too, and so far Joan Jett is not scheduled to appear, but fellow Blackheart Records artist The Dollyrots is on the list. If any other Blackheart artists join the lineup later, I’ll let you know.

Dates and venues are TBA and will be announced soon.
