JC Brooks & Ume at BV Chicago // Epitonic SXSW -- 3.13.2013
JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound
Ume

Last week down at SXSW in Austin, TX, we teamed up with Epitonic to throw a free, two stage day party at adjoining venues Swan Dive and Barbarella Patio on Wednesday, March 13. The day kicked off with sets from Chicago's Many Places and NYC's folky The End of America, and was co-headlined by JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound and Generationals. In between, The Besnard Lakes, Ume, All Eyes West, Twin Peaks, On An On, Eric Pulido (of Midlake), WHY?, Minor Characters, Mister Lies, Autumn Owls, Mahogany, and Tango in the Attic all performed.

In addition to the music, our sponsors Redken were passing out bottles of their Clean Brew Extra Cleansing Shampoo, which helped to keep us smelling great all week long.

BV Chicago photographer Sara Pieper was on the scene and was able to grab pictures of all bands from the late afternoon on. More of her photos can be found below...

Montreal's The Besnard Lakes are set to release the follow-up to 2010's excellent The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, titled Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO, on April 2 via Jagjaguwar. Last week, they unveiled the LP's lead single "People of the Sticks," which you can check out at the bottom of this post. If that track is anything like the others on their forthcoming album, we're in for another great one. Preorder the LP via Jagjaguwar's webstore.

While a full tour hasn't yet been revealed, The Besnard Lakes will take the "last train to Chicago" for a performance at Schubas on April 20. If you were wondering why tickets for that Suuns show at Schubas hadn't surfaced yet, it's because they'll be opening for their labelmates. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Friday (1/18) at noon CST. All known tour dates are listed below.

All known Besnard Lakes tour dates, Until In Excess, Imperceptible UFO's tracklisting, and a stream of "People of the Sticks" are below...
