Renowned concert venue the Brooklyn Bowl is throwing a series of SXSW concert events in 2018, naturally in Austin’s Scoot Inn in the hipper east side. In partnership with Harley-Davidson and Sailor Jerry, the three-day event brings in 24 bands with the help of some seriously influential music publications like Brooklyn Vegan, Relix, Consequence of Sound, and This Song is Sick. The shows span across genres, showing off the broad range of current and legendary shows the Brooklyn Bowl is known for. The day shows are free with RSVP and there’s a chance to win passes to the night shows – while some of the lineup is yet to be announced, the bands confirmed to play day shows already include bright American R&B writer/singer Son Little, New York brother-sister soul duo Lawrence, storied producer Dan The Automator who brings his experience from Handsome Boy Modeling School and Deltron 3030 with Del tha Funky Homosapien to the stage along with DJ Qbert and a surprise special guest, New York precocious rock group Sunflower Bean, Chicago rap’s latest star Kweku Collins, and rag-tag feel good southern rockers The Texas Gentlemen. And there’s plenty more where that came from – read on for full event details, the bands as announced now, and of course the links to RSVP to get in!
