Brooklyn labels Northern Spy and Ba Da Bing are teaming up on an official SXSW showcase on Friday March 14 at Palm Door on Sabine St. Newly announced on the line-up is Sean Lennon’s Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger who release their new album, Midnight Sun, on April 29 on Chimera Music.
The Ba Da Bing and Northern Spy Showcase features a new generation of musicians emerging as the genre defining artists of psych, avant garde and experimental. No showcase can boast such an eclectic group of artists, for each band is singular in their approach and belong to a genre unto themselves. Oscillate to the dark-folk drone of Cross Record, trip balls to the psyched out grooves of Cloud Becomes Your Hand and NYMPH, get a pit started during the chaotic early grunge of Slothrust and shake your friggin ass to the saxophone pop of DVA. They’ve got it all and they’ll be partying indoors and on their backyard deck.
