As you know, BrooklynVegan is returning to Austin for SXSW this year and throwing four days of day parties at The Main & The Jr aka 603 Red River Street at the corner of 6th aka the old Emo's location. Those happen Wed (3/13), Thurs, Fri and Saturday (3/16). All shows are 100% FREE with RSVP.
Savages at Pop Noire night in London in 2012
The free Wednesday show runs from noon to 6 PM across two stages and the lineup looks like this:
Glasslands stage (aka Main Stage)For this one, there's a good amount of multi-genre representation with the spastic math pop of Marnie Stern, the abrasive post-punk of Savages (who won just about everyone over at CMJ), post-rock from Athens via Maserati, the Balearic pop of Delorean (who we haven't heard from in a while), 8-bit pop punk rock from Anamanaguchi, veteran alt-rock from Camper Van Beethoven, veteran psychedelia from Robyn Hitchcock, the now-electronic dream pop of Braids, and still more. Like the other three parties, this one is open to the public and 100% FREE with RSVP. SXSW Badges and those on "The RDIO List" will be given priority admission.
12:45 Marnie Stern
