9th Annual Spillover Festival Announces Anamanaguchi, The Orwells, Broncho and More In First Reveals
We here at Central Track have been covering Parade of Flesh's annual post-South by Southwest bash since back when it was still called Bro Fest. And, if there's been one constant throughout that coverage, it's our sentiment that Spillover is awesome.
Because, hey, it really is. It's a relaxed, affordable and intimate way to catch some of the most fun acts playing South by Southwest — and without the trouble of having to go to Austin. It's a good deal, basically. And crowds have responded, increasing in size at the festival each year. In turn, Spillover has continued to grow, too.
Now, Spillover is making its biggest growth leap yet. For the first time ever, the 2016 festival will now expand to two days, further encroaching on the South by Southwest market by hosting bands on Saturday as well as on Sunday. This year's festival will again go down across three Deep Ellum venues (Trees, Dada and Three Links), but will now take place on March 19 and 20.
Today at noon, Parade of Flesh revealed the first round of 15 acts it has slated to fill its two days' worth of booking slots. Among the highlights (full list below): The Serious Pizza-hating, chiptune-indebted electronic four-piece Anamanaguci; rowdy Spillover veterans The Orwells; catchy Oklahoma pop-rock act Broncho; London slacker-punks Yuck; retro-garage rockers Shannon & The Clams; and bedroom popper Alex G.
Two-day passes are currently on sale for $40 a pop right here.
Expect at least one more round of bands to be announced in the coming weeks and months, including the local band additions. We'll of course keep you posted on that news as it comes.
