If you have been paying any attention to the site over the last few months, you know what kind of fans we are of the FADER
. Why, just last fall we teamed up with ‘em, filming every band that played their CMJ sideshow on the Lower East Side.
This year at SXSW, the mag will come to the defense of a whole slew of bands and mc’s, building their own Austin fortress of rock and hip hop. Scheduled from Wednesday March 12th to Saturday March 15th, The Levi’s/FADER Fort
will host top level performances from the likes of The Kills, The Ruby Suns, Yacht, Grand Ole Party, Birdmonster, Saul Williams, The Lemonheads, Langhorne Slim, The Stills, Lykke Li, Santagold,Spank Rock, NERD, 2 Live Crew
, and a tribute to Lou Reed featuring Yo La Tengo, My Morning Jacket, Moby, Thurston Moore
The Levi’s/FADER Fort will be open for business daily, starting at 1:30. Head the FADER
