The Jesus and Mary Chain to Headline Paste's Official SXSW Showcase
Titus Andronicus, Arkells also to perform
We are proud to announce our official South By Southwest showcase, which will feature special headliner The Jesus and Mary Chain. The 90-minute performance from The Jesus and Mary Chain will be the band’s sole performance during SXSW. The band’s recently announced, limited U.S. dates are their first North American appearances since 2008.
The event will take place on March 15 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the recently refurbished Belmont on 305 W. 6th Street in Austin. New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus is also set to perform at the showcase, which comes after last week’s teaser for a new album. Canadian rockers Arkells, Seattle’s Night Beats and Los Angeles’ Cold Showers will also perform at the showcase. The event will be open to attendees with SXSW wristbands and laminates only.
Paste will also have a three-day event during SXSW called Sennheiser & Paste Present The Stages on Sixth, which will feature headliners Built to Spill, Glen Hansard and Ben Kweller. You can RSVP to that event and view the full lineup here.
