Here are two upcoming Gundlach Bundschu music-related events that I wanted to make sure and tell you about:
SXSW WINE DINNER WITH WINTERSLEEP
Jeff Bundschu is hosting a wine dinner on Wednesday, March 14th during the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas. The four-course dinner will feature the exceptional wines of Gundlach Bundschu and Jeff's Blue Nomad Wine Company and a live set by Canadian indie rock band Wintersleep. If you are lucky enough to be attending SXSW this year, you can reserve your seats by calling Flemings Downtown Austin directly at 512-547-1500.
FRUIT BATS & FRIENDS AT GUNDLACH BUNDSCHU
Long-time friends of Gundlach Bundschu, the Fruit Bats, will be returning to the winery's historic barn to perform on Saturday, April 28th along with opening acts Gold Leaves and Garrett Pierce. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. More information on the event and the bands can be found here.

"Open" - Rhye
The website TheOwlMag.com has the most information that I can find about this band: "an unknown group out of Los Angeles has released a tasty little EP that you’d never believe was birthed in the city of angels. Rhye has left no paper or digital trail giving clues to the members of the band, where they’re originally from, or if they’ve ever been in bands before." You can listen to all six "tasty" tracks of their debut on Spotify.
"Working Titles" - Damien Jurado
Damien Jurado is a prolific indie rock singer/songwriter from Seattle. This track is from his latest album Maraqopa, which was produced by Huichica's own Richard Swift.
"End of the Line" - Sleigh Bells
Fresh off their unfortunately underwhelming performance on SNL, Sleigh Bells is nonetheless continuing to impress their legions of fans with their latest album Reign of Terror.
"Sweet Sour" - Band of Skulls
This alternative rock band from the UK will be returning to Austin this year as part of KCRW's 2012 SXSW Nighttime Showcase on 3/14. This infectious track is from their latest album of the same name.
"Genesis" - Grimes
The music blogosphere has eagerly been awaiting Grimes' new album Visions. And from this review, I wish I had caught her show last weekend at The Echo. It's fascinating that she creates her music alone in her bedroom, with the application Garage Band.
BONUS SONG: "Weighty Ghost" - Wintersleep
Enjoy this tune from the band that will be a part of Gun Bun's special dinner at SXSW. They most recently performed it on the David Letterman Show.
