Tuesday SXSW Showcases
First night hangs – showcases!
SXAméricas: Zona IndieSledge Hammer
Family-friendly pop en Español, California-born Raymundo brings his upbeat, radio-friendly rock to this showcase highlighting the best of the best in Latin indie. Adding synthpop to the mix, Chilean group Wentru performs its smooth dreamscapes from latest EP El Lado Salvaje (The Savage Side). Ecuadorian fivepiece Los Detectives Helados mix rock, indie pop, and blues on last year's eponymous debut LP. From Rosario, Argentina, just in the shadow of Buenos Aires, Sur du Monde angle their Sixties Brit rock under a modern Argentinian lens. Compared to the likes of other international pop groups like Coldplay, Kapitol's piano- and choir-based big sound anthems close out the night.
