SXSW Music Weekly Round-Up: Let’s Eat Grandma, K-Pop, Chopped & Screwed Workshop

January 27, 2017 Bryn Beausoleil

2017 Showcasing Artists Max Abysmal, SlowKiss, Sam Lao, Gala Brie, and The Outer Vibe

We’re another week closer to SXSW! To celebrate, we’re announcing the addition of the following Conference Sessions (Music) and Showcasing Artists you’ll see when March 13 finally comes around. Let’s dive in so that you can begin familiarizing yourself with the upcoming events.

Vinyl has recently made quite the comeback, with record sales rising the past few years. To discuss this increased demand and how manufacturers are adjusting to it, we’ve assembled a panel on The Modernization of Vinyl Record Pressing. Among our other Conference Sessions, we also have a chopped and screwed workshop featuring speakers, such as DJ Hollygrove and DJ Ryan Wolf, who will teach their slow down music methods.

On top of that, we have the latest list of talented Showcasing Artists who will be joining us here in March. Leading the group announcement is one of the original no wave artists James Chance and the Contortions, UK indie rock group Blaenavon, Let’s Eat Grandma, T-Rextasy, and more. Some even greater news is that we’re hosting artists such as La Mente and Menores at our first-ever Sounds from Peru showcase. We even have the 5th Anniversary of the K-Pop Night Out showcase in store!

While you’re here, tune into the sounds that come with the artists through our weekly Spotify playlist and radio channel SXSWfm.

If you like what you hear, why not see them in March by registering today for a Music badge! You’ll have the ultimate SXSW experience, from access to the Music Festival showcases, to engaging in some of the most valuable networking opportunities of this industry, to several Interactive and Film events.
