Though the show is not sanctioned, Fort Worth super-group EPIC RUINS will be performing in downtown Austin during SXSW at Skinny’s Ballroom and Radio Station (115 San Jacinto Street, between 2nd Street and Caesar Chavez) as part of an after-party on Thursday evening, March 17 (technically, the early morning of Fri., March 18). Curated by Jordan Richardson (EPIC RUINS, Ben Harper and the Relentless7) and Kevin Aldridge (Chatterton), the after-party will feature several bands with Fort Worth and Los Angeles connections. (Richardson is from Fort Worth but lives in L.A.)
Fort Worth’s presence at South-by has never been stronger. Eight Fort Worth artists will be playing sanctioned showcases this year, the most ever in South-by’s 20-plus years.
