Keith hangs out after the OFF! set of our showcase and talks with us for a few. He lets us know the band’s plans after SXSW, who he’s listening to and how many pairs of Vans he’s been through:
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!
We have another amazing photo set from our new photo contributor Colleen Allison! Last week she checked out OFF! at the Echoplex. Check out her shots from the show:
This tour sounds like a match made in heaven. OFF! (Keith Morris’ new band) and Trash Talk will be hitting the road together this spring for an east coast run. I know that I say to go to all the tours that I post here, but this is the one you really, truly and honestly can’t miss, ok? Ok. Cool.
