ARIZONA ECHO CLOUD 2012 SXSW SHOWCASE

And it came to pass that we entered the corridor of time (consisting of about two weeks) in which we will go into final preparations for our South By Southwest trip. Austin's a pretty solid drive, and gas is on the perpetual uphill slope, so we're making sure we have everything we need to not get stranded.

16 March 2012, 12pm - 12am, HOLE IN THE WALL, Austin, TX
This is the flyer for the showcase that Echo Cloud is putting on in Austin for SxSw. 

The point of the showcase is to jostle the national alternative art media's attention towards Arizona. I think most people who live here and regularly go to see live original rock music know that this metro area is brimming with talent. We've played with some inexplicably great bands from around here, and I think that there are enough of us who feel that way that we deserve to show the rest of the country that Arizona is capable of becoming the next new alternative music hub. With Crescent Ballroom, Foundry, and other places opening, we have the means to host more and better touring shows. With a station like 106.7 KWSS giving so much airtime to local music is only helping things. Music has never been quite this exciting in the Phoenix area, in my opinion.

Anyways, we're playing with a bunch of fantastic bands in Tempe on March 11th to kick off the tour to SxSw, which includes dates in San Antonio and El Paso, and I think you should come. Longtime local legends The Go Reflex will be joining us, and it's only $5. It might be your last chance for a deal so good.

Love all around!
