SXSW: Showtime bringing Common for panel about ‘The Chi’, Lee Fields, DMC, Speedy Ortiz for parties

Common will be in town for the South by Southwest Conference and Festival. The Chicago rapper/actor/activist/powerful and intelligent human being, will participate in a featured session on ‘The Chi,” the Showtime drama he created and executive produces.

The panel, scheduled for Monday, March 12, also features executive producer Lena Waithe and actors Jacob Latimore and Jason Mitchell. No word yet on whether Common will perform, but he would make a stellar headliner for the annual NPR music showcase if he felt like sticking around for a few days.

Showtime will also host the Showtime House at Clive Bar during the festival. Events include a Thursday showcase celebrating the show “SMILF” that features an all-female lineup with  indie rock outfit Speedy Ortiz and rapper Princess Nokia as well as a Friday party featuring soul dynamo Lee Fields and the Expressions and rapper Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. Both of those official SXSW events still have headliner slot wide open.

SXSW: The festival is looking for Austinites willing to host international bands

South by Southwest season is almost upon us. The Interactive and Film conferences kick off on March 9 with the Music Festival starting in earnest the following week.

From the beginning, international music has been a huge part of SXSW. Festival organizers say they expect about 25 percent of the roughly 2000 artists scheduled to attend SXSW this year to travel to Austin from abroad.

RELATED: The rich experience of hosting an international band during SXSW

On Tuesday, festivals organizers put out a call looking for Austin families who are willing to host international artists. To host an international artist you just need a spare bed (air mattress and sleeper couches are acceptable, the floor is not) and an open heart. In exchange, the festival will provide music fest wristbands to your household.

“The SXSW International Housing Program is one of my favorite things about living in Austin, and that’s saying a lot because I love Austin,” Robin Dusek, who works at the University of Texas and has been hosting bands for eight years, told us last year. She’s taken in bands from all over Mexico, New Zealand and a slew from Scotland. A lifelong music fan, she loves the way the program puts her in the mix with the festival, but the best part is the musicians themselves.

“They come over as these strangers staying in your house and then you become friends because you’re just in this situation together,” she says. “That’s what the biggest benefit is, meeting these awesome people.”

Centrally located homes with easy access to public transportation are preferred. If you’re interested in hosting a band, you can learn more about the program here. 






You’re in Luck! Or you’ll want to be with this lineup at Willie’s place

Willie Nelson performs at Luck Reunion on March 16, 2017 in Spicewood, Texas. This year’s event is set for March 15, 2018.

March 15 is the date for this year’s Luck Reunion, the annual musical gathering out at Willie Nelson’s fictional ghost-town in Spicewood in the midst of South by Southwest. Top names on the bill this year include Kurt Vile, Josh Ritter, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Nikki Lane, Waxahatchee and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

The lineup may give some hints about SXSW acts not yet announced, though artists playing the Luck Reunion aren’t necessarily also playing the festival in town. Other notables among touring acts in the lineup: John Paul White (formerly of the Civil Wars), Kevn Kinney (of Drivin’ N’ Cryin’), Hiss Golden Messenger, Lilly Hiatt, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Ezra Furman, Son Little, Twain, Paul Cook, Liz Cooper & the Stampede, Caleb Caudle, Blank Range, Joshua Hedley, Kevin Morby, Devon Gilfillian, Cut Worms, Night Moves, Hop Along, Buck Meek, Sam Lewis, Courtney Marie Andrews, Charley Whitten, Michael Nau and Sunny War.

Plenty of Austin and Texas acts are on the bill as well. They include Willie’s kids Lukas Nelson (with his band Promise of the Real) and Micah Nelson (with Particle Kid), John Doe (now living in Austin), Ray Wylie Hubbard, Kelly Willis, David Ramirez, Paul Cauthen, Texas Gentlemen, Cody Canada, Erika Wennerstrom and Altamesa.

As always, Willie Nelson & Family are scheduled to close out the evening. Nelson recently canceled a slew of winter dates while recovering from the flu, but he’s currently scheduled to return to the road on Feb. 28 in Florida, winding his way back to Texas by mid-March.

More details are available at the Luck Reunion page on Facebook. Tickets for the public are a little tricky, per Tuesday’s press statement about the event: “Tickets are released on a rolling basis via Luck Reunion and participating partners. Future ticket roll-outs will be announced on Luck Reunion’s social media channels.”

Take a sneak peek at SXSW events and locations, via city permit list

[cmg_anvato video=4318887 autoplay=“true”]

A list of 160 permit applications in March on the city of Austin’s website sheds some light on what’s in store for South by Southwest day parties this year, including the return of Fader Fort and a Facebook event on Rainey Street.

THE LIST: “2018 Spring Festival Events” on the website

The Fader Fort site is at 1501 E. Seventh St., the former site of French restaurant LaV. Last year, Fader moved from its longtime Pine Street Station spot to a smaller East Sixth Street location at Volcom Garden.

RELATED: New book chronicles 15 years of Fader Fort at SXSW

The Volcom site is on the list for a March 10-12 event listed as simply as “Roseanne,” indicating a tie-in to the upcoming revival of the 1990s sitcom set to premiere March 27 on ABC.

Other entries on the list of note include the Rachael Ray Feedback House at 1102 E. Cesar Chavez St., the return of Brooklyn Country Cantina to Licha’s Cantina at 1306 E. Sixth St., and the Instagram House at 2415 E. Fifth St. And GSD&M, the ad agency on West Sixth Street that has hosted Ray Benson’s birthday bash the past few years, is on the list for parties March 12-15.

Auditorium Shores is listed for events Thursday through Saturday, billed at the SXSW Outdoor Stage Concert Series. This is consistent with the past couple of years since Auditorium Shores reopened; last year, that included a major all-day event on Saturday with headliner Garth Brooks.

Events scheduled for the full March 9-18 run of SXSW include a Warner Bros. TV & DC Comics Pop-up Shop at 717 Red River St. (a parking lot next to Sidewinder nightclub) and a YouTube activation at the Coppertank, 504 Trinity St., where the company has set up shop during SXSW before.

Update: This post has been updated; a spokesperson for Fox says there is no “Bob’s Burgers” installation planned.


It’s South by Southwest wristband season! Available now, online only

SXSW wristbands go on sale at 11 a.m. Tuesday, January 16, for $169. Deborah Cannon/AMERICAN-STATESMAN 2007

It’s that time again: South by Southwest will begin selling wristbands to this year’s SXSW Music Festival at 11 a.m. this morning (Tuesday, Jan. 16). They’re $169 (tax included) and will only be available online via the event’s website.

More than 2,000 acts will perform on 100 stages between Monday, March 12, and Sunday, March 18, as part of SXSW Music. A new wrinkle this year: Music wristbands also will get you into the SXSW Gaming Expo.

READ MORE: A big list from SXSW, with more than 500 acts added

Wristband sales are limited to Austin-area residents. Per the SXSW press release: “Individuals may purchase one wristband for themselves and one for another person whose name must be provided at the time of purchase. Online purchase requires a credit card with a billing zip code in the Greater Austin area. A list of zip codes is available at” Historically, the SXSW Music wristbands have sold out quickly.

A big list from South by Southwest: More than 500 acts added

[cmg_anvato video=3997585]

Here’s the biggest name-drop yet for this year’s South by Southwest: The annual mid-March mega-festival has announced more than 500 new additions to its music event.

Wyclef Jean is among the acts that have been added to the South by Southwest lineup this week. Contributed

Highlights include the North American debut of Max Richter’s eight-hour composition “Sleep,” which is helpful seeing as how nobody ever gets any sleep during SXSW. Exactly how and when that’s going to take place hasn’t been announced yet; when it was performed in London last spring, the run-time was 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.

READ MORE: Previous SXSW 2018 additions in October and in November

Other notable names among national acts in this batch include Minnesota indie minimalists Low, Philadelpia R&B act Son Little, Nort Carolina songwriter/producer Chris Stamey and Los Angeles DJ Cut Chemist (formerly of Ozomatli and Jurassic 5). International additions include Irish Rockers the Strypes, Haitian rapper Wyclef Jean, South Korea band Crush and English songwriter Frank Turner.

Top locals on board include Latin funk ensemble Grupo Fantasma, country singer-songwriter Kelly Willis, Erika Wennerstrom of indie-rockers Heartless Bastards and hip-hop outfit Magna Carda.
