If Yahoo! is trying to earn more cred with the hipsters, their SXSW plans are a good start. They're taking over Brazos Hall (and renaming it Yahoo's Brazos Hall) for the entirety of the festival for a few pretty killer official showcases there. Badges or wristbands required.
Following a pop/electronic show on Tuesday with Milky Chance and more, things start getting exciting on Wednesday (3/18) night, which is the Atlantic Records Loud Pack showcase. It's stacked with some amazing hip hop, including Ty Dolla $ign, Kevin Gates, Curren$y, O.T. Genasis -- as in, the "Coco" guy (!), Fat Trel, Kap G, Spenzo, DJ Drama and DJ J-Que.
Thursday (3/19) is mostly bluesy rock from Black Joe Lewis, Heartless Bastards, Delta Spirit, The Apache Relay, Elle King and Slothrust.
There's a pretty amazing night of indie rock on Friday (3/20) with reunited '90s-era bashers Failure (their only SXSW show), Speedy Ortiz, Creepoid, What Moon Things, Bully and Heat.
Finally, Yahoo! brings their stint at SXSW to a close Saturday night (3/21) with another sweet rap bill: Young Thug, Travi$ Scott, Shy Glizzy and Metro Boomin are on all on board, and possibly more TBA.
The 2015 Waterloo Records SXSW day party schedule has been announced, and it looks like this:
