Our 2016 SXSW experience was one to remember. We had a great time exploring one of the most unique music, interactive, and art festivals found only in downtown Austin, Texas.
As an official showcasing artist at SXSW (in conjunction with our booking agency, New Frontier Touring), we had the opportunity to share the stage with a handful of other New Frontier artists. Mingling and spending time with fellow New Frontier bands, while also catching their quick 40 minute shows is one of our cherished memories from the week. Two of our favorite bands we met at the New Frontier showcase is Austin based Blue Healer and Chicago based Post Funk band The Main Squeeze.
When we weren’t playing one of our four showcases, we searched for the best free food an artist wristband could find (this mission usually ended up being a cheeseburger at the artist tent haha). But SXSW was more than free food, we also caught a few live shows including Electro-pop band Poliça and the great Loretta Lynn! Loretta put on a show with her incredible vocals by singing the hits that made her one of the most celebrated women of country music.
This year’s SXSW was a great opportunity for us and are excited to participate again in the future!
P.S. We also got free backpacks! Thanks Jansport!
