Death Grips, Mount Kimbie Set for SXSW Appearance at Boiler Room + Ray-Ban Showcase
SXSW kicks off next week, and more and more “must see” shows keep popping up on the radar. The latest? Death Grips and Mount Kimbie will appear at the joint showcase between the underground music channel Boiler Room and Ray-Ban, the snazzy eyewear company. Good music, good shades, good times.
The Ray-Ban X Boiler Room showcase is scheduled for Saturday, March 16, at 1110 Warehouse, so it’s at the tail end of SXSW, a case of saving one of the best for last. It’s also an exclusive SXSW performance for both Death Grips and Mount Kimbie.
Other acts set to appear include Chief Keef & GBE Squad, Lunice and Skream, as well as special guests. If, by chance, you’re not headed down to Austin this year to participate in the SXSW festivities, fear not: You can watch the event online, since it will be streamed in full here.
That’s right: You can have your own virtual SXSW, thanks to the wonders of modern technology. Yes, there are times when we are slaves to it, but when we can pretty much beam down to Texas to enjoy a killer show without ever leaving the house, it’s nothing short of a miracle.
