Manitoba Music In Austin

Posted on

Manitoba will be all over Austin this week, showcasing at the prestigious South by Southwest and RedGorilla Music Fest, which runs simultaneously in Austin, sending some of its most exciting acts to showcase in front of influential international music industry professionals.

Now in its 22nd year, SXSW -- which runs March 17-20 -- is one of the world’s biggest music festivals and conferences, featuring over 1300 acts from across the globe performing in every imaginable genre. Those in Austin can also catch the fast-growing, four-year-old RedGorilla Music Fest, which focuses on promoting showcases to the general public. 

This year’s list of local showcasing acts includes alternative pop outfits Boats, 2010 JUNO Award nominee Romi Mayes, hip-hop act Grand Analog, singer/songwriter Ruth Moody of The Wailin' Jennys, and heavy rock outfit Domenica. Manitoba acts will have the opportunity to perform for some of the industry's top names as well as rabid audiences in several Austin venues.

For the 12th year, Manitoba Music and MANITOBA FILM & MUSIC joins forces with North by Northeast to present the hottest party at SXSW at the Caswell House -- a gorgeous mansion in Austin, where industry and artists gather to eat barbecue, play music, and schmooze. This year’s party features live performances by Romi Mayes and expat Luke Doucet as well as Hollerado and Dinosaur Bones.
