UNregular Radio and Channel 3 announced the details and lineup for their unofficial SxSW showcase, which is happening Wednesday, March 14, 2012. The showcase entitled, "SHARK Alarm!" will be at the Aquarium on 6th in Austin, Texas from 2 PM to 10 PM This will be UNregular Radio's first visit to SxSW but it will not be the first time that UNregular Radio brings a bill of budding independent acts outside state lines.
The lineup includes Cheers Elephant (Philadelphia, PA), Math the Band (Providence, RI), The Seedy Seeds (Cincinnati, OH), Little War Twins (Boston, MA), The Space Crazies (Austin, TX) and The Ragbirds (Ann Arbor, MI). The show will be co-headlined by Boston's psych rock piano virtuoso, Richard James & The Name Changers. Finishing up the show will be Austin's own White Dress with their fierce resonating bluesy dramatic rock.
"The lineup is a platter of some of the hardest working, most talented up and coming acts that UNregular Radio and Channel 3 supports," says Gayle Coston CEO of Channel 3, a music database website based out of Philadelphia launching this March.
"But, this line up doesn't define the sound of UNregular Radio. That's simply not true," interjects Dave Crespo, music director and events co-coordinator at UNregular Radio. "The bill is a state of the industry reflecting the budding national community of independent artists and its dedicated fans."
The Crespo/Coston duo began collaborating on producing shows in 2009 when they were lining up events for Allston, MA's own, F Nice Records. Although distance separated the duo when Coston moved to Philladephia, their love for local independent talent enabled them to bring this event to the DIY music haven of America, SxSW.
Any SxSWers planning to attend this unofficial showcase?
