Published Mar 04, 2011Music Waste and Olio Festival are two of the major events on the Vancouver music calendar. Now, the festivals are going international, as they're teaming up for a SXSW showcase that will feature some of Canada's finest forward-thinking acts.
The show will take place on March 19 at the Soho Lounge in Austin, TX. The event, which, for the purposes of full disclosure, is being co-sponsored by Exclaim!, is heavy on Vancouver artists, as it features No Gold, Babe Rainbow, Teen Daze, Basketball and DJ My!Gay!Husband! The bill is rounded out by Montreal-based beat-maker (and former Exclaim! cover star) Poirier and Toronto R&B popsmiths Bonjay.
According to a press release, the show "highlights the next crop of up-and-coming Canadian talent." So don't be too surprised if these artists get their own headlining slots in future instalments of SXSW.
