Manooghi Hi at SXSW

If you're going to SXSW, schedule yourself to check out Manooghi Hi at Spiro's Nightclub on Saturday, March 21 at 7 p.m. A spectacular blend of rock with Indian music, the band features Indian pop star Mehnaz. Check out their myspace page to hear some samples. Really unique music with awesome musicianship.
