And so we join the SXSW deluge: Village Voice Media, the parent company of SF Weekly, and Frank 151 yesterday announced the details of our annual SXSW party: We'll deign to spare you any unfortunate lyrical references to the Wu-Tang Clan but it is headlining. Other eyebrow-poppers you'll want to check out include Carrie Brownstein's new band, Wild Flag (of whom we approve), and a DJ set by Erykah Badu. Oh and this year, the whole thing is free -- no wristband or badge required. Full lineup and relevant details after the jump.


The full lineup as announced:


Wu -Tang Clan

Fishbone

Erykah Badu DJ Set

YelaWolf

Trae Tha Truth

Marz Lovejoy

Rocky Business

Trouble Andrew

Wild Flag

Ume

Plus Special Guest

Well, any party with Fishbone on the same bill as slamming Austin rock trio Ume has to be a mindbender. The thing goes down Thursday, March 17, 2011 from 5 p.m. - 2 a.m. at Austin Music Hall, 208 Nueces. More info on this website, but, basically, show up before 8 and it's free! (No RSVP.) There's also a pre-party from 5 to 8:30 p.m.

So see you there?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
