SXSW underway; Passion Pit streaming live tonight
Passion Pit in Chicago last month (more by Cory Dewald)
Passion Pit, who already had a song in a Taco Bell commercial, are in Austin for SXSW Interactive to film a Taco Bell-sponsored rockumentary titled Feed the Beat: SXSW 2013, which includes live footage that will be streamed live TONIGHT (3/11) at Hype Machine’s Hype Hotel. Once documentarian Sam Jones finishes the film, it will be sourced to all fans for free. The rockumentary will also feature tweets, vines, and instagrams from fans that use the hashtag #FeedtheBeat. Wildcat! Wildcat! open.
Speaking of SXSW, like Hype Machine, BrooklynVegan will be presenting multiple days of shows in Austin this week. Check BrooklynVegan.com/SXSW for full lineups and more details.
The Hype Hotel Passion Pit show, though being streamed live to the whole internet-connected world, will only have around 1000 people in attendance – much more intimate than the the headlining show Passion Pit recently played at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Film trailer below…
