SXSW comes to a close, March of the Scrubs continues with more new music and there are more new releases to look forward to.
If, like me, SXSW seems like a lifetime away then the annual Nerdcore showcase will seem like a magical night only the lucky few will ever get to appreciate. The line-up at the Flamingo Cantina was impressive with Canadian duo Ghettosocks and Timbuktu performing as Teenburger ahead of Adam Warrock, Tribe One, More Or Les, Dr Awkward, MC Lars, Jesse Dangerously, MC Frontalot, Schaffer The Darklord with Random, aka Meg Ran, rounding off the night. I’ll be putting together a SXSW mixtape podcast celebrating this epic show over the next week as I did last year.
Other friends of The Unheard Nerd were performing elsewhere around the mammoth expo were Mikal kHill and Uncommon Nasa entertaining with their talents at other indie rap shows.
