I’ll be honest here, Pete Reid has picked out ten great Scottish bands who are going to be playing SXSW< and I doubt I’ll see any of them. Not because they’re rubbish (far from it), but I can pop down the road here in Edinburgh and see them at mu local clubs… for all you in Austin, or coming from further afield this is your chance to see what we listen to on the east side of the Atlantic:
And the annual Scottish Showcase is at the ‘British Embassy’ as usual:
The Scottish acts will be performing to thousands of industry representatives and fans at a number of showcases during the festival including Showcasing Scotland at SXSW 2015, presented by Creative Scotland at the British Music Embassy. The Showcasing Scotland concert provides a spotlight for Scotland’s presence at SXSW, attracting industry professionals and music lovers. Dates and further details to be announced shortly.
