Can’t make it? We understand…
We’ll be streaming all of our live SXSW performances.

Here’s a quick refresher on the artists that will be at our stage.


Pokey LaFarge:

What a killer way to start our day! If you don’t know Pokey the mere sight of him may win you over. If this isn’t enough, listen to one song, you’ll get the gist of his art. He blends rustic sounds of the past with his own witty humor that plays into our current day and age. He first gained a big following touring with Jack White in 2012. 

Pokey LaFarge - Tiny Desk



The Seratones are an upcoming band that is hitting big in the South Atlantic. A groovy rock outfit comprised of four very talented musicians that have a unified goal of “rocking your socks off”.

Seratones - Tiny Desk



These two new york natives are bound to have an intimate set, like most of their music, the main focus is lyricism and “picking oneself up through music”.

Overcoats - Tiny Desk 


Elephant Stone:

One band that will have an unforgettable live performance. Rishi Dhir and company have been making global psychedelic rock for over a decade now. With an incredibly unique sound that falls somewhere in between psychedelic and new wave self inflicted lyricism, Elephant Stone will not disappoint. 

Elephant Stone - Silence Can Say So Much 



A midwestern band that has a knack for creating uplifting “stadium anthems” the range of the bands mood are endless and will definitely be an intimate midday show at our stage.

Michigander - Audiotree Live Performance 


Girl Friday:

Classic Los Angeles garage rock band. Their multifaceted approach to music composition gives them an interesting edge as all members sing and participate in the writing of songs. (Unfortunately I could not find a live performance with good sound quality).
