This SXSW showcase is a celebration of the who’s who of young musicians on the verge of being your new favorite. From a young opera-trained rapper from Dallas and a sprawling group of Australian indie rockers to a confident British teenage rapper and a Chicago singer blending indie rock and R&B, and points in between.
Date: Thursday, March 15
Venue: Empire Control Room (606 E 7th St)
Lineup: Knox Fortune, Gang of Youths, Caroline Rose, The Shacks, Suzi Wu, T.Y.E., Ness Nite
