Pitchfork is teaming up with Paramount Network to throw a truly star-studded concert at SXSW 2018! “Heathers” is an hour-long deathly dark comedy series based on the 1989 cult favorite, but the lineup for the celebratory party is going to be a killer attraction in its own right. The lineup features rising star Kelela fresh off her debut 2017 studio album, West Londoner and BBC Sound of 2018 Longlist-er Nilüfer Yanya with her gorgeous blend of modern stripped-back R&B grooves and deep, emotional vocals, relentlessly modern indie pop act Superorganism, New York’s upbeat rapper/singer/pop genre and gender stereotype-bending Shamir, and far, far more! The whole event is completely free, open to all who are 18+, and in Red River District standard Barracuda, guaranteed not to be far from wherever you are. Read on for full event details to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
12 noon – 6pm Friday, March 16th @ Barracuda, 611 E 7th St Austin, TX 78701
