COLLiDe is returning to SXSW and if you are familiar with either COLLiDe or SXSW, you know that these guys throw some of the best shows of the entire festival. First time going to SXSW? Well, let me tell you what you are in for. ColliDe will be hosting several events throughout the festival each at a different location within Austin’s own Rainey St.
This year, COLLiDE is bringing over 100 bands with them along with some amazing presenters throughout the week. Showtime is back once again, and hosting not 1, not 2 but 3 parties promoting several of their series such as The Chi, Black Monday with Paul Scheer in attendance, Shameless and two Documentaries: Shangri-La and Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men.
Dr. Martens is also returning and will be doing free tattoos courtesy of Michael Williams and there will also be a Dr. Martens Pop-Up Store, so be sure to pick yourself up a pair.
Not sure where to start though? Don’t worry, I got you covered. You can RSVP for all daytime showcases! Night parties are badge/wristband only, Also 21+.
Fender kicks off the Fender Next program with live performances, discussions and workshops featuring artists that represent the new face of guitar in music and culture! Cautious Clay came onto the scene last year with two EPs and is someone I advise anyone with ears should give a listen to. Add on Japanese Breakfast and Vacationer and that’s just Icing on the cake!
Experience the best of SXSW with StubHub Sound Stage at Banger’s. The StubHub Sound Stage will be hosting two days of epic performances, not to mention homemade sausages and the most beers on tap in Texas. Did I mention they will be having one of the dopest Hip Hop groups ever, De La Soul, rocking the stage?! Don’t sleep on this.
