We are accepting applications to play the 2022 Balanced Breakfast Showcase in Austin on March 17th & 18th at The Jackalope during SxSW with Music City SF.

This year Balanced Breakfast has 2 unofficial showcase dates in Austin during SxSW. BB will be at the Jackalope on 6th Street from 12-6PM on Thursday, March 17th and Friday the 18th. (If we add any other dates or locations we will inform you.) We will choose 18 bands from the applications we receive and notify all bands via email of our lineup choices. If your band is approved, you will be assigned a 40-minute set.




We start every showcase with a “Singers in The Round” set featuring 3 artists, so we accept applications from solo singer-songwriters in addition to bands. Unfortunately, the venues do not allow DJs during our showcase. Finally, applying does not guarantee your band a spot in the showcase, but we will notify you either way. Due to to the cost of hosting showcases in Austin, BB requires a $10 fee with this application to play our showcase.


  • Applying gives band members a 1 year BB membership valued at $12 per member.
  • The show is back-lined with drums, a guitar amp, and a bass amp
  • Sound equipment, including mics, PA’s, and monitors will also be supplied.
  • Selected artists can sell their band merch at the venues.
  • It is preferred that all members of the submitting band be 21+, but it is not required.
  • There is no compensation for playing the showcase.
