The 26th annual South by Southwest music festival is kicking off March 13th in Austin, where a hundreds of bands – from veterans to new discoveries – will take the stage across dozens of bars and clubs for a whole week. We aren't personally hosting any parties this year, but you should still check out these two showcases from PMA affiliates Audible Treats and MOG.
We're sponsoring Audible Treats' Third Annual Official Hip Hop Showcase because we believe it captures the spirit of SXSW. The showcase will be headlined by hip hop vanguards Souls of Mischief and Talib Kweli, and will feature a host of up-and-coming hip hop acts, including our ones to watch THEESatisfaction.
