Hip. Edgy. Alternative.
We launched Roxwel.com
in March 2006 as an alternative fusion site that caters to a base of cutting-edge music enthusiasts. We keep our site current with 4,000 Rock, Metal
and Indie videos
from the hottest unsigned, independent and major-label artists. Additionally, Roxwel.com strengthens its online presence with offline ventures at the nation's most prominent music festivals--SXSW, Lollapalooza, CMJ
and Austin City Limits
to name a few--and we bring it all back to our users in the form of featured interviews and live concert footage. We also have our own Rock and Metal video blogs to keep viewers up-to-speed on the latest happenings in the industry, establishing Roxwel.com as a one-stop shop for alternative entertainment
and a premier outlet for the discovery of new music.
Roxwel Original Programming
- 101x In Studio: Join Roxwel.com and the jocks of Austin's 101x as we hit some of the biggest and baddest music festivals in the country.

Continually expanding our production operations, Roxwel.com currently has a presence at South by Southwest (SXSW), Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits (ACL) and CMJ Music Marathon.

- Artist Commentary: Roxwel gets the artists' perspective on the making of their latest music videos, song and album concepts, touring and everything in between. The Artist Commentary series allows viewers to get a more intimate look at their favorite musicians, and it's also an outlet for artists to explain how that screwball video or off-the-charts album came to be. These details, coupled with picture-in-picture video or live performance outtakes, really exhibit how concepts become finished products.
