THE DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND at SXSW FestivalPublished on Venerdì, 11 Marzo 2011
Once again THE DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND have been invited to perform at the Internationally recognized South by Southwest Music and Media Conference & Festival (SXSW) in Austin Texas, and this year's edition sees them being part of a real killer funk line-up! The Diplomats' showcase will in fact be wedged between performances by latin funk kings Brownout and Motown legend Dennis Coffey, and as if that wasn't enough, T-Bird and The Breaks will be cleaning it up after Mr. Coffey at 1am. This will all be taking place on Saturday March 19th at the Beauty Bar / Palm Door stage from 22 pm onwards (check the events page here for details).
SXSW is probably the biggest and most important music festival in the United States, and gathers as many as 12,000 participants. This year The Diplomats will be presenting a showcase that includes tracks from their latest full-length "What Goes Around Comes Around", out now on CD/LP/Digital in all the best stores, and lauded by the likes of Wax Poetics and DJ Andy Smith. We highly recommend anyone in the vicinities of Austin to attend the festival and check out the band's show, but for those of you that can't, The Diplomats will also be performing in Austin a few days prior at Peckerheads and Rabbit's Lounge as well as in Iowa at The Blue Moose Taphouse in Iowa City on Friday, April 15th and at Parlor City Pub in Cedar Rapids on April 17th.
