The Reader -sponsored South By Southwest band Satchel Grande played two hour-plus-long sets Monday night to a crowd of about 150 festive supporters as part of TR’s send-off show. Frontman Chris Klemmensen said the band was scheduled to leave for Austin Tuesday at 8 a.m. Their SXSW gig is tonight (March 16) at Karma Lounge in Austin, 119 W. 8th St. The send-off show included raffles and giveaways in support of the band’s trip, and Satchel was also awarded proceeds from the door.
