Local "junkerdash" group Hillfolk Noir recently had its application to play at SXSW accepted by festival promoters, clearing the band to play in the all-Boise showcase on Wednesday, March 13, at a yet-to-be-confirmed Austin venue.
Other bands confirmed for that showcase include the curators, Built to Spill, and Boise's most road-tested export, Finn Riggins. Bad-trip soundtrack superstars Le Fleur also announced via their Facebook page that they have been accepted to the festival as part of the showcase, but as of now, SXSW has not yet listed them as official participants. Other bands expected to be included are Youth Lagoon and the Brett Netson Band.
