The act we're previously tightlipped about (due to contractual music biz stuff) now outta the bag, we're extremely honored to have Philly's most excellent Kurt Vile and the Violators on the WFMU + Free Music Archive split SXSW show as the "special guest" on the 12AM (Central) slot. We need not (but will anyway) run down the list of our enjoyable moments with Mr. Vile and company, solo on Jason Sigal's show and recently on Tom Scharpling's 2011 Marathon show, and in full band mode on Brian Turner's show and at our ATP Kutsher's 2010 broadcast. They're on tour to support their new Matador disc Smoke Ring For My Halo, just out this month. Gonna be an excellent night, and you can see the full rundown here with some sound samples of the night's roster. Again, we will be broadcasting live from Austin with showtime at 9PM Eastern/8PM Central, at Barbarella (formely Spiro's, Encore) at 615 Red River downtown. $8 door, free with official SXSW-type badge/wristbands. Come on down!
8PM: Amen Dunes, 9PM: El-G, 10PM: Sun Araw, 11PM: the Endtables, 12M: Kurt Vile and the Violators, 1AM: Whitehorse.
