Stereofly’s ‘Road to SXShowcase’ at SXSW Needs You
Columbia-based Stereofly, a self-described “publication and collective geared toward promoting the talent emerging from the Southeast,” is gearing to take their mission statement to heart via a Southeastern showcase set to premiere at the granddaddy of all music festivals, South by Southwest, this year in Austin, Texas, at the Javelina Bar on March 11 and March 12.
Though the outfit, led by editor/photographer/writer Greg Slattery, plans to feature bands from all over the Southeast, including acts from Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and Virginia (with dabbles of Texas and Colorado), their focus definitely lies with the South Carolina music scene, and they plan to provide stage time to bands from Columbia, Greenville, Greenwood, Fountain Inn, and of course, Charleston.
Lowcountry acts looking to make a splash at Stereofly’s Road to SXShowcase include Carnaval, Zonaea, Megan Jean and the KFB, and Rachel Kate.
Though our hometown kids make up a small piece of pie (amongst the 30+ acts on the roster), it’s common knowledge that performing at SXSW is a rite of passage for dedicated independent musicians, that one crucial step that can lead to bigger things. To make this happen, Stereofly needs your help.
A Kickstarter page has been set up to raise the necessary funds to represent the Southeastern music scene at the “Live Music Capital of the World.” A pledge as small as $5 can get you into a Stereofly-sponsored event in 2014, and a little more can get you downloads from participating artists, but hopefully, helping shine the spotlight on the S.C. music scene is all the incentive you need
