Berklee SXSW Party Streaming Live
Berklee College of Music, the only college to host an official party at the SXSW Music and Media Conference—one of the music industry’s biggest events—presents its annual SXSW Party on Friday, March 15, from noon to 6:00 p.m. at Brush Square Park (East Tent), located at 409 East 5th St. (Neches and 5th), Austin, TX. Berklee’s eighth SXSW party is the college’s first at an outdoor all-ages venue. Also for the first time, the lineup is curated by the Red Room @Cafe 939, Berklee’s all-ages nightclub that hosts national and local acts year-round.
The party features up-and-coming Berklee, Berkleemusic.com, and Heavy Rotation Records (HRR) students and alumni performing rock, pop, electronic, Americana, and folk, including acclaimed singer-songwriter Melissa Ferrick, David Stewart Jr., Air Traffic Controller, Chloë Sunshine, Red Oblivion (HRR), Bear Language (HRR), Rebecca Loebe, the Lights Out, Holiday Mountain, and the Field Effect. In addition to performing with her band, Ferrick is cohosting the event with alumna Sarah Sharp.
Listen to the show live at Presskit.to/sxsw starting at noon Central, 1:00 p.m. Eastern time. Presskit.to (by Indie Ambassador and alumnus Ben Maitland-Lewis '05) partnered with Backbone Radio Networks to create a SXSW pop-up radio station, live streaming some of the best showcases with interviews.
