SXSW 2015: Courtney Barnett, Best Coast, Twin Shadow And...
Team FUV is headed to SXSW, to send great live music back home. Here's the plan.
Team FUV, including program director Rita Houston and The Alternate Side's Russ Borris, will be in Austin, Texas, next week for the music and madness of SXSW. We'll not only offer live video performances from bands like Ibeyi and Gengahr, but the broadcast of Public Radio Rocks from the Day Stage at the Austin Convention Center on March 20 at 1pm. Courtney Barnett, Best Coast, Twin Shadow, Gang of Four, Ryan Bingham and Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear round out the lineup for that showcase, co-sponsored by WFUV, WXPN, KUTX, KXT and The Current, and broadcast on all five public radio stations.
Friday's six-hour live concert and broadcast kicks off at 1pm EDT with performances from Twin Shadow (1pm), Gang of Four (2pm), Ryan Bingham (3pm), Best Coast (4pm), Madisen Ward and Mama Bear (5pm) and Courtney Barnett (6pm).
Listen to WFUV at 90.7FM for the full broadcast, also streaming online.
Funding for WFUV's ongoing coverage of live concerts and festivals comes from The Agnes Varis Trust, supporting affordable access to the arts, education and healthcare.
