Saustex Records Announces Collosal SXSW Showcase and Party Schedule

San Antonio based roots-punk label Saustex and Los Angeles based Latin alternative label and management company Cosmica Artists are happy to be co-presenting an Official SXSW Showcase on Thursday March 13th at The Javelina. It’s a great and diverse bill with some old and new names.
 The Copper Gamins (Los Niños de Cobre) kick things off with blues inflected garage rock at 8pm. The duo has just finished recording basic tracks for their new album in Mexico City. Look for them to debut some tunes from the upcoming release.  San Antonio staples The Krayolas bring on Tex-Mex slanted pop rock at 9pm. The band has been a favorite on Little Steven’s Garage for several years running and continue to release a steady stream of new material.   From Tucson, Arizona are Sergio Mendoza y La Orkesta with mambo and cumbia infused Latin Big Band at 10pm. Their live show is known to get the folks moving. 11pm brings another San Antonio entry The Hares – an exciting young band that mash up psychobilly and New Orleans R & B yielding a sound that is evocative of greats like Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino.Their debut album “Smoking In Bed” comes out in May on Saustex. All the way from Berlin come A Pony Named Olga in their first SXSW appearance with a unique blend of Big Beat, Rockabilly, Polka and Punk at midnight. Austin’s own Como Las Movies take Latin grooves places they’ve never been before — at volumes they’ve never been at before, to close the show at 1am.
