We are pretty excited about this! Viva Viva has been invited to play SXSW in Austin, TX! Having gone down to Austin for SXSW in the past, it is an honor to have been selected to play official showcases this year. With that news, we will be packing up the van for a three week tour down to Austin and back. We will be returning home to Boston to play the Brighton Music Hall on Thursday March 31, with Doomstar!, MMOSS and The Fedavees. Make sure to RSVP on our facebook event page.
In addition to being selected to SXSW, we get to join the Boston to Austin SXSW Day Party by Converse and Weekly Dig, as one of ten bands going to SXSW from Boston. The party is on Thursday March 17, St Patrick's Day! What better day to show SXSW how the Boston music scene rocks!
Before everyone packs for Austin, the Dig has put together a special preview show at the Brighton Music Hall on Sunday February 27, to showcase all the bands going down to SXSW. More info about the BOSTON to AUSTIN - SXSW Preview can be found on the facebook event page. FREE tickets are at the Converse store at 348 Newbury St. (There are over 100 of these tickets up for grabs, so get movin'!)
