Look For Secretly Canadian Artists at SXSW

scsxsw2010

Secretly Canadian / Jagjaguwar / Dead Oceans SXSW showcase a rousing success!

Many, many thanks to everyone who came out for the Secretly Canadian/Jagjaguwar/Dead Oceans SXSW showcase. We had a great time playing host(ess), and the Mohawk turned out to be a perfect venue to encase all the madness. Jagjaguwar bands bookended the evening on the outside stage, with Besnard Lakes kicking things off in properly epic fashion, and Okkervil River tugging at the heartstrings to close the show. I Love You But I Chosen Darkness, Richard Swift, and Bishop Allen also did us very proud. Ladyhawk, Evangelicals, Catfish Haven, David Vandervelde and Dirty Projectors brought the thunder to a packed crowd inside, with Frida Hyvonen demonstrating the very meaning of sublime. We are still groggy, and our feet still hurt, but it was worth it. SXSW was some serious fun. See you all next year!
