2017 Official Showcase Presenter

Brooklyn based indie label Exploding In Sound Records, who recently celebrated their fifth anniversary, will present their first official SXSW showcase on Thursday, March 16th at The Velveeta Room. The showcase line-up includes both label favorites and new artists including Pile’s Rick Maguire, Ovlov, Stove, Baked, Jackal Onasis, and Tall Friend. Hailing from Boston, Connecticut, Brooklyn, and Philadelphia, SXSW will be the Texas debut for much of the bill and it’s been a long time coming. With all six bands set to release new records in 2017, the Exploding In Sound showcase is a preview of what the label that introduced Porches, Speedy Ortiz, and Palehound has in store for the future.

Date: Thursday, March 16
