La Doña, Wet Leg, Wolf Eyes, and Chris Patrick Added to SXSW’s 2022 Music Ranks

… along with 302 other acts from around the world

La Doña

South by Southwest expands its 2022 music lineup today with over 300 acts including Detroit experimental noise terrorizers Wolf Eyes, feminist reggaeton breakoutt La Doña, the arty, funny folk pop poetry of Cassandra Jenkins, NYC pop ensemble Laundry Day, and versatile rapper Chris Patrick.

Also on deck for the festival, running March 11-20 in Austin: the in-your-head avant-garde musings of Sloppy Jane, striking Polyvinyl-signed indie-pop upsetter Ian Sweet, Texas bedroom pop artist Hannah Jadagu, and the soul stirring work of Ural Thomas & the Pain, whose song “Smoldering Fire” is simply magnificent. Hear for yourself:

British punk trio Big Joanie also earn their free artist backpack (those are coming back, right?), as do Canadian hip-hop duo Cartel Madras, german Afro-hip-hop singer Albi X – whose lyrics hit in Lingala, French, and English, R&B singer-songwriter Bairi, and the thumping vintage British funk group Cymande.

Wet Leg, English duo Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, carry much intrigue from the Isle of Wight. Irresistible pop-sided, Mean Girls-quoting rock track “Chaise Longue” took off on Domino Recordings and landed on Late Night With Seth Meyers,. Recurring off-color cries of “industry plant” on TikTok have only heightened appeal.

Austin makes a strong standing in the latest lineup drop with homegrown blues guitarist Jackie Venson, renowned True Believers singer-songwriter Jon Dee Graham, as well as his music-making son William Harries Graham. Austin’s alexalone, post-rock universe of former Hovvdy and Lomelda bassist Alex Peterson, debuted on Polyvinyl Records last year. The announcement also previewed a number of familiar local music entities as showcase presenters, including Black Fret, EQ Austin, and KUTX’s The Breaks.

The totality of Austin-based announcements reads: Atlas Maior, BabiBoi, Band of Bastards, Beatnik Bandits, Big Wy's Brass Band, BÖNDBREAKR, Bourgeois Mystics, Calliope Musicals, CasinoATX, Darden Smith, Darkbird, David Shabani, Density512, Dominican Jay, Ella Ella, Eyelid Kid, Flyjack, Fuck Money, House of Lepore, Indrajit Banerjee, Jane Leo, Johnny Chops, Kathy McCarty, Magna Carda, Mélat, Miggy & Tje, Motenko, NAGAVALLI, Peelander-Z, Primo the Alien, San Saba County, Shooks, Susannah Joffe, Tetractys New Music, The Western Express, and User Unauthorized.

For the first time, today’s announcement specified that a number of artists – all from China, Japan, and Taiwan – will be performing virtually only during the hybrid festival. Those include Sixties girl group-twisting Osaka ragers Shonen Knife and Taiwanese sibling math rockers Elephant Gym. The announcement said all SXSW Music registrants will receive access to in-person events as well as virtual “SXSW Online programming and networking.”
