If you couldn't make it to the biggest music festival in the country, you could head over to sixth street to get a piece of the action.

It's not South by Southwest, it's South by South What?!

When bands are heading to and from the Austin music festival, some exit I-40 and come to some local venues.

About 10 bands will hit the stage over the next week at The 806, traveling from all of the United States.

The 806 has been doing this for years, giving local musicians and fans a chance to hear a little bit of the festival right here in the Texas Panhandle. 

We caught up with fan who says she's been coming to South by South What?! for three years.
Amberley Clark says, "it's really awesome for the people in Amarillo who can't make it to Austin to see the same bands and stuff like that and get the feel.  We support it 100% and we really do love it. "

Clark also says the small festival is a way to bring the community together and enjoy good music at the same time.

The South by South What?! Burlesque Grand Finale will be Saturday the March 22 at 9:30 p.m.
