Earlier this year, the festival chose to promote in a unique way by throwing their own party during SXSW. Some of the acts performing this year have been somewhat active earlier in the year.
Dr. Octagon released an old unreleased song titled “Redeye” much to the excitement of old school hip-hop fans. This year Joyce Manor performed at the Mohawk to a crowd of exciting fans who were eager to see them after they released their new album.
