likeZEBRA, the world's most prominent independent music hub, is teaming up with Adult Chocolate Milk at this year's South By Southwest festival in Austin TX to put together a showcase you won't want to miss if you're going to be there.
Here are the details, from likeZEBRA's press release:
Drawing the attention of music fans from all over the world, the likeZEBRA SXSW Artist Showcase will feature six coveted likeZEBRA artists performing live at the Dirty Dog Bar on 6th Street, Saturday, March 19, 2011 from at 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Host to the largest database of independent music and artist exclusives, likeZEBRA is excited to launch yet another liveZEBRA event to encourage the growth of independent music around the world.
Who's playing this showcase? Innerpartysystem, Defeater, Memphis May Fire, The Parlotones, Barcelona and Harris Grade, that's who. You may recall my previous post about Harris Grade, an energetic group out of Los Angeles poised to make noise in 2011. They've spent the past few months recording new songs for a follow-up to 2010's Lipstick Politics, and they're planning on playing a few of the new tunes at SXSW.
To entice likeZEBRA fans to check out this special gig, LZ are giving away a free compilation of the bands playing the show. All you have to do is click here and either sign up to be a likeZEBRA member, or, if you already are one, just click "download". Easy as pie.
If you're going to go to SXSW, and don't plan on standing in line all week for The Strokes' free gig or any of the other distractions going on there, you won't want to miss likeZEBRA's showcase.
