Nomathmatics Lose Control at SXSW

Though Kansas City has more than respectable representation in the official SXSW showcase, our biggest coup this weekend in Austin is sure to come from the three-day non-showcase party that local DJ duo Nomathmatics, with help from a lot of friends, is throwing in defiance of God, the Man and Everybody. More than 60 individual acts, a few bands and a lot of DJs, are convening Thursday through Saturday this weekend for the Lose Control Party at the Canvas Bar and Gallery (105 E 5th, Ste 113).

“After our visit last year to SXSW and attending multiple parties we decided this year we wanted to host and play one of the bigger parties of our own,” says Sheppa, one-half of Nomath.

Check the flyer posted at for the lineup and to RSVP, if you’re going. Last time we talked with Sheppa, about a week and a half ago, the RSVP count was approaching 4,000. Damn.

The KC-Lawrence acts spicing up the disco meltdown include (of course) Nomathmatics, Norrit, Max Justus, the ACB’s and Dri. Notable out of towners include Le Castle Vania, Treasure Fingers, Toronto’s Woodhands and Kill the Noise, among many others.
