Hi-ho Silver! Bloodshot Records is saddling up for its 22nd SXSW excursion to Austin March 14th to 18th! We're wrangling up seven of Bloodshot's rootin-est, tootin-est musical gunslingers to perform at our annual showcase and day party, as well as a bushel and a peck of other events around ATX. Despite the changin-o-times and the slog of it all, we always look forward to this week in which many of our bands, fans, followers, friends, cohorts, colleagues, appendages, and hanger-ons are present in one place, to celebrate, at some capacity, the fact that Bloodshot still has a place in this weird, wild, weary business.
We're throwing these unrelenting Bloodshot artists into our covered wagon and galloping into Austin...potentially against their respective wills!
(Click here to listen to a playlist featuring all of these artists, to get you good-n-ready for the aural assault in Austin, then get 15% off their albums with coupon code SXSW17.)
The main events include an Official Showcase on the night of Wednesday, March 15th at Continental Club, and the perpetually raucous – and, as far as we know, longest-standing SXSW day party– Yard Dog Party on Friday, March 17th at the Yard Dog Gallery.
