As SXSW approaches, we are stoked to announce the bands playing our showcase! Amanda Rae and Nikki S. (with a little help from me) tell you who’s playing and the details of the event. We can’t wait to get down there and see you guys!
Not only that, but we’ve also teamed up with Alternative Press once again for their totally free, totally all-age showcase. We are proud to announce the bands who are playing our stage during that event, too:
Balance and Composure
Middle Class Rut
See you in Austin!
“In Search of Black Judas,” the solo album of Darryl Jenifer, will be available on CD and LP beginning October 26th! This debut record for the Bad Brains bassist features a blend of his noted rock vibes with a soul and reggae flare- so basically it will sound amazing. Get pumped.
What else can you expect? Some super heavy bass, of course!
You can give it a listen for yourself below:

We did a Bad Brains show in Phoenix earlier this year for PHX AM, and it still looks like this video from 1982. We are banned from having events at that venue ever again. Awesome. Check out photos from that show on Vans Flickr.
