2-day ‘Twin Peaks’ SXSW event to feature Kyle MacLachlan, Neko Case, Real Estate & more
David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is relocating to Austin. Kinda sorta, as Showtime is celebrating the show’s return at The Showtime House (aka Clive Bar on Rainey St) on March 16 & 17 where you’ll be “transported into an immersive TWIN PEAKS experience with themed cocktails, premium merchandise and a photo booth at the TWIN PEAKS lodge.” There will also be music performances all day both days, including Real Estate, Neko Case, M. Ward, Julie Byrne, Agnes Obel, Annie Hart (of Au Revoir Simone who appear in the new episodes), Tim Darcy, Let’s Eat Grandma, Alex Cameron, and more. RSVP to attend — entrance based on capacity (21+). Agent Cooper himself, Kyle MacLachlan (whose 58th birthday was 2/22), will make a special appearance on March 16.
Next door to Clive Bar will be a recreation of Twin Peaks’ Double R Diner which will be open from noon – 2 PM each day, serving up coffee and pie. Whether it will be damn fine pie and coffee remains to be seen but it will be free pie and coffee. There will also be complimentary Twin Peaks doughnuts specially made by Voodoo Doughnut, that are inspired by the show, from noon – 1 PM.
Daily schedules for The Showtime House performances are below.
