Yo! I have a flight to catch in about 4 hours, yours truly is going back to SXSW. I’m currently shaking with anxiety, as there is so much to do so much to see, that I have oodles of content from last years SXSW that I never got to share with y’all (stay tuned I’ll probably crack open the vault real soon).
Incase you are curious are/or going to be down there, here are some showcases that caught my eye/people forwarded to me:
Dimmak & Electrostub
Bounce Beyond (JUVI!)
Karmaloop x Mass Appeal
IHEARTCOMIX / BOYSNOIZE RECS / BAD BLOOD
Shady Record 2.0 Showcase (Live Streaming on Fuse’s youtube page)
Duck Down x Karmaloop
Def Jam x Noisemakers
Mad Decent x Fools Gold Super Party
Korg Fuse Frequency
GZA x MOP
4 Day Brooklyn Vegan
Thur & Fri OWSLA
Last but not very least is the Fader Fort by Converse, which has gotten so big that’s a Festival within a Festival, so meta. ML will be there a lot. Bet on it.
You can see my sched.org schedule here. Which lists a majority of my picks in a nice, neat order. First timers tip: Sched.org app/schedule as well as the official SXSW app are must haves if you have a smartphone.
If you are going, one word of advice, don’t run around from show to show, remember to have fun. I know it can be hard to fight off that FOMO (fear of missing out during SXSW).
Be sure to follow on twitter: @Metallungies & on instagram: Dj01 for nonstop content overload through the week, I’ll try to post updates through the week here as well (crosses fingers for homeless wifi hotspot).
