SEATTLE ARTISTS HEAD TO AUSTIN MUSIC FESTIVAL SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST

Seattle Times
More than two dozen acts from the Seattle area are headed to “the spring break for the music world,” South by Southwest, this year. It’s a party on the surface, with all-night concerts, and beer and barbecue sauce flying through the air. But SXSW is also a networking thing, the concept being that if a whole bunch of musicians, media members, and industry people jump in a blender, great opportunities will arise. For two decades, common wisdom has considered SXSW a rite of passage for up-and-coming bands. The festival bills itself as a place to discover tomorrow’s stars today. For instance, Seattle rapper Grynch will play on the Billboard stage this year because his single, “My Volvo,” grabbed the attention of the folks at Billboard Magazine after they heard it on KEXP. Beyond giving bands an opportunity to be “discovered,” the festival is good for networking on a micro-level, artist to artist, and for getting “face time with press, both planned or better yet, unplanned.” Like Geologic of Blue Scholars who just wants to network with other artists at the music conference to plan tours and collaborations.
