Warner Bros Wild Feathers, Bad Things & More Set for SXSW
It's that time of year when the music industry descends upon the city of Austin, TX, for the annual SXSW Festival. Warner Bros. Records will be a major presence at the festival, showcasing several of our hottest rising acts, including Nashville's The Wild Feathers, New York City's SKATERS, Los Angeles' very own Bad Things (featuring guitarist Shaun White), Foxboro Hot Tubs, Echosmith, Neon Hitch and Mystery Skulls, plus British hard-rock duo, Royal Blood. Also all the way from the U.K. is Damon Albarn, who is releasing his debut solo album Everyday Robots on April 29th.
In Addition, Neil Young will return to SXSW to deliver this year's Keynote Address on Tuesday, March 11 at 5:00ppm at the Austin Convention Center. Neil last delivered the keynote in 2006. Young will be unveiling PonoMusic, a revolutionary new service aimed at providing studio-quality music in digital form. This event will be packed so best to arrive early to gain entry. Please check SXSW's official site for details.
