Beyond proud to present you an (unofficial) SXSW day party along with our friends from Crack In The Road in the form of Dark Paradise, an afternoon showcase featuring acts we strongly believe in with the help from Mailchimp.
It all takes place on March 13 at B D Riley’s, the entire thing is free and no wristband or badge is required. We expect the venue to be packed in no time though considering the - even if we say so ourselves - ace line-up, so come early and stay late. Besides, this line-up is definitely worth you spending the entire afternoon there.
GEMS - 12-12:30 NO - 12:45-1:15 Mozart’s Sister - 1:30-2 Young Dreams - 2:15-2:45 Pacific Air - 3-3:30 Eddi Front - 3:45-4:15 S O H N - 4:30-5
D E N A - dj
RSVP here or on Facebook. Warning: RSVP’ing does not guarantee entry: as soon as the venue reaches maximum capacity, it will be one out/one in.
Quite funny how we always thought of beaches, sun and swimming pools when listening to Pacific Air (formerly KO KO) - the brothers’ first video for Float combines all three of those with a bunch of kaleidoscopic babes. Can summer come back already?
It’s a bit weird we never told you about the pop-mastermind that goes by the name St. Lucia. He released a pretty stellar EP with our friends Neon Gold earlier this year, with a full-length set for a release in the new year. Nothing but praise for St. Lucia, just a little shame-on-us for not telling you about him.
Anyhow, we are now, and to make up for our late-ness we’re offering you te premiere of Pacific Air's remix of All Eyes On You. The LA brothers injected St. Lucia’s nifty pop jam with their recognisable summer-vibe. It’s like you’re celebrating the start of summer on the beach with your friends, a laid-back day in the sun and good music in the background.
PS: if you’re in the LA area go say hello to these from us at Popshop West this Friday!
LA brothers Ryan and Taylor Lawhon - better known as KO KO - have had a busy few months: after the blogosphere-buzz they received thanks to a stellar 3-track debut EP, they signed to Universal, went on tour with Passion Pit and were forced to change their name. People refer to them as Pacific Air nowadays, but despite the major label deal and the forced name change from something cute to something a little more generic, their music still sounds as refreshing, summer-vibed and floaty as before. Next week they release their official debut EP as Pacific Air, fittingly titled Long Live KO KO, which holds this new song Roses.
