Vans Showcase // House of Vans // The Black Angels
Hailing from the home of SXSW itself, the psyc rock band The Black Angels are no strangers to the festival, performing back in 2006 and 2008. Paying homage to the Velvet Underground with their name referencing the legendary band’s “The Black Angel’s Death Song,” the band made their hometown proud again and earn the respect of festival out-of-towners with their vault of heavy psych rock hits from the past ten years of music-making.

Play SXSW at the Vans Village March 12-15! We’ve moved our House of Vans Open Mic Night from Brooklyn to Austin for the week. All genres of music are welcomed but the stage will lend itself to acoustic sets & hip-hop performances most easily. If you’re a band, a stripped down set is necessary. Please bring your own small amps. Keyboards, guitars, etc., are great, but no full drum sets. If you need something else to make it work, just ask, & we’ll try to accommodate. Apply here.
