The South by Southwest Music Conference has released partial lists of Official Showcasing Bands for 2014.
There were two Oklahoma artists on those lists:
Eight other SXSW acts have Oklahoma connections:
• Fauntella Crow (features Tulsa’s Sunday Lane)
• Gungor (features Tulsa’s Michael Gungor)
• Lord Buffalo (features two Stillwater natives – Daniel Pruitt and Garrett Hellman)
• The Mowgli’s (features Edmond’s Josh Hogan, formerly of Bristol Park)
• Oil Boom (features Oklahoma City’s Ryan Taylor, formerly of The Rounders)
• OK Sweetheart (formerly of Tulsa)
• Pompeii (features Oklahoma City’s Colin Butler)
• The Wild Feathers (features Tulsa’s Joel King, formerly of The Effects)
The list will fluctuate over the next few weeks and there will be several more Oklahoma bands added to the official showcase roster.
We will post a full list of dates and times of Oklahomans playing at SXSW as we get closer.
