Ten Manitoba acts are going to mess with Texas this month.
Eight local acts will be showcasing at the 24th annual South by Southwest music festival and conference in Austin, Texas, from March 13-18, while two others are playing different events. Imaginary Cities, Royal Canoe, Les Jupes, Chic Gamine, Hope Atlantic and Cannon Bros. will be playing the Manitoba Music showcase on March 15, while Comeback Kid and Juno-nominated metal band KEN Mode play other showcases. Romi Mayes and Goldboy are also making the trip to play events that run concurrently with SXSW.
SXSW is one of the world’s largest music conferences, with more than 2,000 acts from around the world set to play the festival this year.
