Kansas City has ample representation at this year’s SXSW. Here are the local acts going that we know of, so far, annotated. If you know of any that we missed, post the info in comments. For a complete list of SXSW bands, go here.

And of course, I will be blogging while I’m there, so check back here for updates and mad tales between March 12 and March 16.

Tech N9ne

The mad clown’s SXSW debut! Is Austin ready?

The Wilders

New album coming out in early April.

Mac Lethal

Marva Whitney

This one’s not confirmed; does anyone out there have the scoop on this gal? The former James Brown singer and “Soulsister No. 1” has a MySpace page that says she’s in KC, but we’ve had no luck getting ahold of her.


MySpace headline: “our new album [for Epic Records] is being mixed”

The Republic Tigers

Playing parties for PureVolume and Atlantic Records.


Thus, far, Range Life’s sole representative.

The Architects

Doing the Anodyne showcase again, minus the Meat Puppets, who are on tour with Built to Spill.

Roman Numerals

Just found this one out!
