The Backbeat was excited to announce two new 2014 music showcases on today's show.
Booking agency, Rocky Road Touring, will present seven bands from their roster on Friday, March 14th at Swan Dive Patio. Slated for the bill are few Texas-based groups including Ringo Deathstarr, Purple, and The Boxing Lesson. Rock n' roll acts Calabrese and Star & Dagger are also on the lineup. LA's Moving Units will bring a dance-pop vibe to the table, while funny man Har Mar Superstar will croon the crowd with his smooth R&B tunes.
We are also excited to welcome both Roadhouse Management and Nuclear Blast Records, who will be combining forces to bring SXSW a full night of heavy rock and metal. The metal acts include San Fran doom rockers Orchid and two Texas-based bands, Mothership and Sweat Lodge. Two international acts are slated for the bill including Ireland's BP Fallon & the Bandits, and Berlin's Kadavar. Austin's own Scorpion Child and The Well are also on the lineup. The showcase is scheduled for Wednesday, March 12th at Red 7.
