Dave Grohl’s merry band of rock superstars, the Sound City Players, will continue their string of national shows with a performance at SXSW in Austin, Texas on March 14th. The rotating cast of musicians have already played in Los Angeles, New York and the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, to support the Foo Fighter frontman’s directorial debut, Sound City, a documentary about the famed Sound City recording studio in Van Nuys, California, and its accompanying album, Sound City: Real to Reel.

Grohl’s Sound City Players lineup at SXSW brings back many familiar faces: Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Lee Ving of Fear, Rick Nielsen, Rick Springfield, Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine, Corey Taylor of Slipknot and more, according to Billboard. The show will be held at the rock hall Stubbs and the Meat Puppets will open.

SXSW will be a busy week for Grohl: he will also deliver the festival’s keynote address on the morning of the Sound City Players’ show.
