Next Wednesday in Austin, Stereogum’s presenting an official nighttime showcase at the Bud Light Factory at SXSW. The 3/16 event features six acts you should be very familiar with if you read this website! We’ve got:
- Jana Hunter’s dream-rock crew Lower Dens, a Stereogum Band To Watch from 2010
- Rising R&B trio KING, recent Stereogum Album Of The Week honorees
- Chicago garage-poppers Twin Peaks, also Stereogum Band To Watch alumni
- Evan Weiss’ Into It. Over It., star of our 2014 Cover Story on the emo revival
- Brooklyn avant-pop duo Chairlift, whose beautiful third LP Moth is in Heavy Rotation
- Rap’s Hood Pope A$AP Ferg, subject of our new Cover Story in advance of his 2nd LP
The Hood Internet are the night’s DJs. This event is 21+ and open to SXSW badge holders. You can find the Bud Light Factory at 204 East 4th St. (hint: it’s normally called Brazos Hall). Our friends at Vibe and Spin will be hosting afternoon showcases there on Thursday and Saturday, respectively, so check those out as well. And tell us on Facebook if you’re coming!
