Comprised of artists and producers in the creative orbit of Outkast, the collective counts one sole LP: 2001’s Even in Darkness. Last month, the day after performing on the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Big Boi announced a reunion and Dungeon Family tour, which hits the road throughout April.
Austin-based rapper and songwriter Abhi the Nomad opens the show at 6pm. Two more performers are yet to be announced. SXSW previously unveiled the other two nights of their free Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake series: X Ambassadors top Thursday’s lineup, while Patty Griffin and Andrew Birdheadline Saturday.
