AUSTIN, Y'ALL // PUT these SXSW Music Showcases on your calendar

SXSW is that time of year where Austin becomes socially stratified into badgeholders, wristbands, hopeful ticket buyers at the door, line waiters and those who avoid it all together. While that can be the frustrating part, there’s something unnaturally exciting about bands playing in unlikely spots and otherwise unused areas turned into guerrilla venues.

// The Official Pitchfork SXSW Showcase // Friday, March 14 at 6pm

Some of the most transcendent Southby shows happen at Central Presbyterian Church like the 2012 Fiona Apple show. The Pitchfork crew has put together a lineup that looks primed for another surreal, dare we say religious, experience. Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon and current folk favorite Angel Olsen will be taking the stage.

// Pitchfork Day Parties //

Pitchfork also has a killer day party lineup taking place at the French Legation. Up and comers (and more establish acts) such as Kelela, Speedy Ortiz and Isaiah Rashad are slated to take the stage.
