South by Southwest is about a month and a half away, which means that it's time to start getting inundated with SXSW showcase announcements -- leading off with this one sponsored by our sister paper Village Voice. As the paper announced yesterday, the xx, Superchunk, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and Surfer Blood will play a VV showcase on Friday, March 19, at La Zona Rosa in Austin. It's a day party, so festivities will take place between 12 and 5 p.m.
We're excited for another chance to catch the xx, who blew us away at the Triple Rock when they came through town in December -- and for those of you who won't be venturing down to Austin this year, we'll try to contain our excitement as we count down the days until this year's festival.
