Words by Kieran Meadows, Natalie Weiner and Jesse Serwer—
It’s the time of the year when the music industry decamps to Austin, Texas to spend a week catching up on the best sounds from all around the world… and to have some fun, too. Here at LargeUp we’re excited to be presenting our first South by Southwest showcase. With help from the House of Marley, we’re bringing some of our favorite Caribbean artists and some proper bashment vibes to Empire Patio, part of the Empire Control Room complex in downtown Austin, on Wednesday from 12-5. So bring your wining shoes, and don’t forget to RSVP!. And we’re not the only ones. Caribbean acts, tough to find in past years of the festival, are definitely taking to Austin in greater numbers this year.
