2018 Official Showcase Presenter

Catch 7 days of intelligent distractions plus cutting-edge music performances at the tiny house of smart located at Palm Park. Enjoy the one of a kind live concerts of Kaki King, March 12, 8 PM and Riders Against the Storm, March 15, 8 PM.

The Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist Kaki King was hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘a genre unto herself’. Kaki King launched a groundbreaking multi-media performance that converts her signature Ovation Adamas guitar into a projection screen depicting a wildly luminous creation myth around the instrument.

Riders Against the Storm (RAS) can only be described as ‘historic’ and a musical movement in Austin. RAS transforms every audience with a refreshing magic and flair that few possess today. In everything they touch, ceremony scrapes the floor and atmosphere, RAS cast out invitations to the world – come and party.

Date: Monday, March 12 & Thursday, March 15
Venue: Palm Park (601 E 3rd St.)
Monday Lineup: Kaki King
Thursday Lineup: Riders Against the Storm
