SXSW is Back
SXSW is back once again after its cancellations due to COVID in 2020 and 2021, and it’s sure to be a lively celebration of all things culture, not just music. It also will feature films from up-and-coming directors and an interactive portion sharing all things innovation.
You can opt to buy individual tickets for each of these three types of events. Or you can go for a platinum badge which gives access to all three.
SXSW and Music
SXSW is known for its history of sharing a diverse set of artists big and small from a variety of genres including rock, hip-hop, and country. In the past, it has featured artists such as Grimes, Lady Gaga, Jimmy Eat World, and Public Enemy.
This year will feature another huge lineup including artists such as ALASKALASKA, J.I.D., Remi Wolf, and Saba. Each of these artists, among others that will be performing, has made a splash in their music scenes with their distinct musicianship. Among the artists that will be at the festival will be Teenage Joans and Tribe Friday.
The music festival portion of SXSW will run from March 13-19, and it’s an eclectic celebration you want to miss.
Teenage Joans and Tribe Friday
Teenage Joans is an Adelaide, Australia-based pop punk two-piece of drummer/vocalist Tahlia Borg and guitarist/vocalist Cahli Bakers. This duo made a splash in the music scene with their debut single ‘By the Way,’ which released in 2019. Then, their debut EP ‘Taste of Me’ won seven different awards, was placed on Triple J’s hottest 100 list, and has amassed over 3.5 million streams. They’ve also kept up this pace into 2022 with a sold-out tour across Australia.
With Teenage Joans, you know you’re getting an exciting and emotional rush of pop punk greatness. They work with exciting riffs, catchy melodies, and creative lyricism to build an entrancing discography. They’re also known for electric performances that aren’t to be missed.
You can catch Teenage Joans at SXSW on March 16th at the Lucille stage and the Valhalla stage. They will also be playing on March 17 at the Lucille Front Yard.
Then there’s Tribe Friday, an emo indie rock boyband out of Sweden that consists of vocalist/guitarist Noah Deutschmann, drummer Zack Liljeberg, guitarist Isak Gunnarsson, and bassist Robin Hanberger Pérez. This band hit the charts with their single ‘shut me up’ which has over 1.2 million streams. After this, their debut album “Bubblegum Emo” was released in June of 2022 and was received with critical acclaim.
Tribe Friday has a captivating sound. With their discography, you can expect a rush of indie rock with a dash of dance influences. Their music captures a sound that’s truly signature, but it remains dynamic from track to track. The vocal pitch and guitars build into a bright atmosphere and the bass rounds everything out in a nice way. They also work well with tongue-in-cheek lyricism that explores emotions, love, and other aspects of life itself.
You can catch Tribe Friday at SXSW on March 14 at the Belmont stage.
