Yob playing Nanotear showcase @ SXSW w/ Agalloch, but not Roadburn (updated dates & lineups)
Yob at Scion Rock Fest (more by BBG)
Amongst the zillions of bands playing billions of showcases, every year presents certain must-go events at SXSW. Thursday Mar 17th at Barbarella Patio will feature an incredible line-up of bands as part of the Nanotear Showcase, co-headlined by the one-and-only Yob with Agalloch, and featuring appearances from Witch Mountain, Worm Ouroboros, Amber Asylum, Arabrot, and Wizard Rifle. The show will be Yob and Agalloch's lone appearance at SXSW, and the first date of a East Coast tour for Agalloch/Worm Ouroboros that will eventually land them at NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on March 22nd. Tickets are still available.
Yob recently cancelled their appearance at Roadburn, as well as their entire European tour. While that comes as sad news, the festival has added Keiji Haino, Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, and a performance of Eve by Ufomammut in its entirety to counteract that. Full Roadburn lineup is below.
Arabrot will hit the road with Wizard Rifle, playing dates along the East Coast. More on those dates very soon, but for now check out some video, the Roadburn lineup and all Agalloch dates below...

Agalloch live in Portland, Oregon 12/17/2010
NANOTEAR 2011 SXSW SHOWCASE
Thursday, March 17th, 2011
Barbarella Patio - Austin, TX
Thanks to a gracious invitation from the good folks at SXSW, Nanotear Booking will present a showcase of the finest uncompromising musical artists the West Coast has to offer.
Co-headlining the bill are doom metal legends YOB and dark metal masters AGALLOCH. This reunites the classic concert from 2003 when Agalloch first graced the stage in support of YOB and long-running Portland doom metal act WITCH MOUNTAIN. Also performing are the experimental classical quartet AMBER ASYLUM, Profound Lore recording artists WORM OUROBOROS, ARABROT (traveling all the way from Norway!), and a powerful new duo from Portland, OR called WIZARD RIFLE. This is one showcase that should not be missed.
A limited edition silk-screen poster by Mark McCormick will commemorate the evening. The hundreds of folks who arrive too late to gain entrance to this show will sulk eternally.
