Saturday SXSW Showcases


Nine Mile Records

8pm, Parish

Austin-based Nine Mile Records marks its 10th anniversary this year, and paces a representative roots-rock lineup to mark the occasion. A. Sinclair begins, the Austinites stepping out from longtime outfit Frank Smith with the rocking swagger of upcoming LP Get out of the City. Low Cut Connie continues the Philadelphia quintet's bar-band assault with last year's third LP, Hi Honey, blasting classic boogie and shake, while rock-out garage groovers Sweet Spirit remain one of Austin's most exciting new outfits, enticing even Spoon's Britt Daniel to produce a single. Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen lead the ninepiece live explosion that aced last year's debut Cokomo. Delta Spirit frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez returns to native Texas and goes solo with this year's Solicitor Returns, an impressive psych-inflected set of folk rock and sharp ballads. Dead Confederate's T. Hardy Morris amped up for raw and raucous second solo turn, last year's Drownin' on a Mountaintop, and former Zykos leader Michael Booher closes previewing a new septet's pop-powered debut LP, Funny Tears.
