Cheap Trick To Play SXSW 2010

AntiMusic is reporting that the one-and-only Cheap Trick will perform at the 2010 SXSW Music Festival, to be held March 12-21 in Austin, Texas. Since the '70s the band has been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is catchy and instantly recognizable. With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, Cheap Trick are a musical institution. Their most recent release, 'The Latest,' has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues the group's reign as a power-pop progenitor as they celebrate their 35th anniversary together.
