SXSW – First Bands Announced
Posted by Neil Wilson
SXSW, the annual music conference and festival held in Austin, Texas, announced the first wave of bands to play at next year’s festival yesterday. As ever there’s an abundance of talent swelling in the list, with bands drawn from all over the world descending onto the streets, bars, clubs, garages, and basements of Austin. All vying to connect, impress, and even influence fans and music industry attendees.
The first batch of artists include Hinds, Yuck, The Parrots, Hælos, and OKRAA. What interests us though is which bands from Scotland will be ripping it up in the Lone Star State.
With Creative Scotland still to announce which bands will receive funding to head over, Scottish Fiction favs WOMPS and The Spook School are both in the initial release of bands to be playing, which is a great endorsement of both acts, who are becoming used to stomping all across the USA.
Great news for both bands.
