SXSW 2014 - British Music Showcase at Latitude 30

March 20, 2014

Every year during SXSW, Latitude 30 becomes somewhat of an ambassador for British music. Tonight the place was jam-packed, and I was pretty much confined to my little spot at the corner of the stage for the duration of the show. Most, if not all, of the bands were making their US debuts during SXSW, and the likes of Wolf Alice and Jungle arrived with a lot of buzz. I particularly enjoyed Glasgow band Prides. What can I say? I'm a sucker for synthpop and anthemic choruses, and Prides delivered in spades.

The full lineup:

  • Sweet Baboo
  • Wolf Alice
  • Prides
  • Bipolar Sunshine
  • Jungle
  • Slaves
