Are you playing SXSW 2017? If so, we want to hear from you! March is an exciting time to live in Austin, although some residents go into hibernation during the week of Spring Break. They apparently cannot handle all the fun happening in their own backyards. But we love being in the midst of things, and we thrive on the energy of so many travelers joining us right here. Historically Nuclear Salad has not covered the music side of the festival, but this year we’re changing it up. We’ve decided to finally start giving music the attention it deserves.
Every year so many fantastic bands converge in this musical mecca, and deciding which to see can often be challenging for music lovers. We’d like to make recommendations and get fans to the venues that feature the bands they would most love. Consider us a type of musical matchmaker. While theoretically, we could spend our days researching every single band, we really don’t want to do that. There are hundreds of you, and we have jobs and lives and friends and stuff. Instead, we’re offering you the opportunity to let us know about your style, when and where you’re playing, and just how cool you are (assuming you are cool). We’ll pass along this information to help people make an informed choice.
SXSW is a great opportunity for bands to get exposure, and while you may have a buzz in your home town, that buzz may not make the journey with you to Austin, Texas. We would like to help you generate some buzz locally. If you will be playing that week in town, either an official showcase or not, and would like a little extra publicity for your show(s), please contact me via this link NuclearEmail with SXSW Music as the subject. NOTE: If you do not use that subject, you’re email will likely not be seen.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope you have an amazing time during your stay in Austin, Texas.
