This year’s lineup includes Canadian supergroup The New Pornographers, preceding a larger North American tour which begins in April. Give “This Is The World Of The Theater” from their new album Whiteout Conditions (out April 7) a listen. As diverse as ever, this year’s lineup also includes electronic pop duo, and new Loma Vista signing Sylvan Esso, Texas-born singer/rapper Lizzo, the long-awaited return of Alynda Lee Segarra’s Hurray for the Riff Raff, and live-wire queer punk band PWR BTTM.
There are only a couple weeks until the festival, so secure your place and register for a SXSW Music Badge. Not only will you gain access to legendary speakers and performers, but this year’s badge gives you secondary access to many non-music events as well.
