The lineup for the South by Southwest Thrasher Death Match is out. Headliners include psych rockers Om, rapper E-40 (playing on the same bill as Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt), punk rockers Title Fight and metal band Dillinger Escape Plan. The most striking thing about the announcement is that the party, the┬ásite of last year’s Tyler the Creator incident,┬ámoves from the Scoot Inn to the Gypsy Lounge, a tiny club on East Sixth St. this year.

The party will still have the skate ramp they’ve built in the last several years set up in an adjacent parking lot. Suffice it to say East Sixth will be completely insane this year.
