At the end of last month, we clued you in to Popwreckoning‘s pre-SXSW showcase, wherein six bands would be competing for three slots at the music website’s SXSW showcase. We told you that we’d let you know when all the details were in.

Well, said details are finalized, and the lineup is as follows:

You’re looking at a strong representation of Kansas City’s alternative scene right there. The show is 18 and up, at the Beaumont Club on Friday, March 5. Tickets are $10, and according to the event’s Facebook page, “All proceeds from the event will pay for the Kansas City and Austin Showcases and funds required for artists to play South by South West. Your money will be spent supporting local music 100 percent.”
