Antone’s. Austin, Texas. Tuesday, March 17th, 5.30pm. The Jim Jones Revue are tearing through closer ‘The Princess & The Frog‘, bringing not only their own set to an end, but a day of unashamedly anthemic British rock n roll as well. Previous storming, crowd pleasing sets by Doll & The Kicks, Pulled Apart By Horses, The Mighty Stef, Twin Atlantic, Pint Shot Riot and The Boxer Rebellion had shook the famous old venue to its foundations, and in doing so turned Live4ever’s Two Fingered Salute showcase into one of the undoubted highlights of the 2011 South By Southwest Festival.
And now, after the runaway success of SXSW, the Live4ever roadshow is rolling into New York for the city’s annual CMJ Music Marathon, with a net this time cast further ashore from the white cliffs and craggy highlands of the British coast. Allow us to introduce the Live4ever Media Official CMJ 2011 Showcase, taking place at the Brooklyn Bowl on October 18th.
From the US, Fifth Nation, 1,2,3, Le Blorr and The Dirty Grandform an opening assault from some of the States’ brightest new talents, with hometown electro noise-makers FIGO later spear-heading a dual punch of UK and Irish punk-tinged rock from the returning Pint Shot Riot, and The Minutes; a band arriving at CMJ armed with one of 2011′s greatest debut releases.
It’s a line-up that demands a special conclusion, and that’s exactly what we’ll get. Along side Aussies DAMNDOGS, London rockers The Duke Spirit will treat the Live4ever Media showcase to an exclusive headline appearance, whose sassy, soul blues vibe will be a fittingly memorable way to end what is sure to be a memorable celebration of worldwide rock n roll.
If all that isn’t enough, late night DJ sets from LA Riots, VHS Or Beta and Boyhollow will keep our event rocking right into the wee small hours. Live4ever at CMJ – bigger, louder, and not to be missed.
