Local smart-pop quartet, SPEAK, makes its ACL debut this weekend, playing unreleased songs and cuts from their critically-acclaimed “Hear Here” EP that caught the attention of the Talking Heads, who presented them Best New Band at the Austin Music Awards during SXSW 2010.
SPEAK kicks off their first national tour with an appearance at the Voodoo Experience (Weezer, MGMT, Drake) in New Orleans October 31. They join Dallas, TX act The Secret Handshake for a 20-date jaunt across the country from November 4-December 6.
