And so we join the SXSW deluge: Village Voice Media, the parent company of SF Weekly
, and Frank 151
yesterday announced the details of our annual SXSW party: We'll deign to spare you any unfortunate lyrical references to the Wu-Tang Clan
but it is headlining. Other eyebrow-poppers you'll want to check out include Carrie Brownstein's new band, Wild Flag
(of whom we approve
), and a DJ set by Erykah Badu
. Oh and this year, the whole thing is free -- no wristband or badge required. Full lineup and relevant details after the jump.
The full lineup as announced:
Wu -Tang Clan
Erykah Badu DJ Set
Trae Tha Truth
Plus Special Guest
Well, any party with Fishbone
on the same bill as slamming Austin rock trio Ume
has to be a mindbender. The thing goes down Thursday, March 17, 2011 from 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. at Austin Music Hall, 208 Nueces. More info on this website
, but, basically, show up before 8 and it's free! (No RSVP.) There's also a pre-party from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
So see you there?
