As our local bands journey southward for SXSW, Kansas City's home-away-from-home down in Austin is already making its mark. Here's a video from showcasing band member and organizer Steve Tulipana of our Kansas City brethren cloaking their building with a giant banner in Austin in preparation for the Midwasteland Takeover.
After making camp (complete with booze and food,) the 32-plus local showcase was set to kick off at 2PM this afternoon, and the line-up includes a recent addition of Jessica 6
(a former member of disco-electro get-up Hercules and Love Affair).
No word yet as to how the showcase is progressing, but there's no doubt our beloved Kansas City locals appreciate a home base in the SXSW madness that's ensuing.
