2018 marks the second year GRUNGECAKE heads to Austin’s premier music week to host an emerging music showcase. We will also celebrate our eleventh-year in business. Last year, breakout star Cleveland-native rapper Lil Bizzy joined us on our SXSW official stage. It was his first time at the music festival. This year, we’re delighted to present new talent from all over the country, too. Our lineup includes singer-songwriters from Brooklyn to Detroit (BXHXLD and King Visionary), more than one woman onstage (BVNGS, Connie Diiamond, Jay Triiiple, KentheMan, Koo Qua, Latasha, and Lil Westside KeKe), an eclectic producer-DJ from Seattle (Sax G), and an upstart Alt-Punk band from Denver, Colorado (SKRVLLZ). We will also enjoy sets by DJ Alisha B (KGNU 88.5 FM Eclipse) and DJ Kolby TurnHer (Alamo Records). If you’re in town, come out to our free showcase to enjoy live music curated by Richardine, FASHIONSPITTA, and FOE. If you’re early enough, you can enjoy pastries by our event sponsor: Just a TidBit. No wristbands and RSVPs required. We’d love to see your smile! Check the link in the bio frequently to see updates concerning performance schedules. *We have added music to the article.
”Friends, as some of you might know, 2018 marks my eleventh year in business as the owner at GRUNGECAKE. I've been in business before then, but that's a story for another day. 2018 also marks my second SXSW Music Showcase. Since our official SXSW debut last year, many of you have emailed me about last year’s lineup. Thank you. We appreciate the compliments, but without you being the fine musicians you are, it would not be so easy. This time around, I want to open my celebration of life, business and music up to give newer artists a chance to shine, offline. I want to know: Who should be on my radar? Will they be at SXSW this year? Great, send them my way. I want to hear what they have going on. If it works out, I will add one lucky person (of your choice through social media) to my lineup.
FASHIONSPITTA and FOE, both GRUNGECAKE influencers, will be on site as well. Get to know them. Say hello. I won't lead you astray and say that they are as kind as I am, but it is still good for you to get to know my people. If you cannot get a hold of me, please reach out to them. We will announce our lineup as soon as possible. Good luck to you! Whoever you are!” — @richardinebartee
GRUNGECAKE and America's Got Talent wants to give one lucky person a 'Front of Line' pass for the New York City auditions on Sunday, December 17. Head to GRUNGECAKE.com right now for the full details.
It is an absolute pleasure to be amoung the world's most respectable and prestigious media outlets. Thank you, @apple.
"Blue is my favourite colour. In my teenage years, I wore it a lot. Some people during that time wore blue contacts. I wasn’t as brave. However, I had blue hair and a plethora of Blue’s Clues dolls and a Smurf infatuation. Nonetheless, nothing compared to the similar hued faces I’d see ever so often. I’ll be honest with you. I didn’t know what the @BlueManGroup
was—in full—until now.
After my research, I’ve found that the group has been around for 26 years. I’m 31. It is the longest running off-Broadway productions in New York City. The Blue Man Group has performed in more than twenty countries. Over thirty-five million people worldwide have experienced their live show. Personally, I think it is fascinating. I have yet to see the bizarre adventure.
In a deeper breakdown, the live occurrence is a culmination of art, comedy, music, and technology. Tomorrow (September 23), the band will play the first New York Drum Off, in partnership with Astor Alive! Festival.
Ahead of the announcement, Blue Man Group hosted a contest for drummers to create and submit a video showing off their skills. Each contestant had to upload their videos to YouTube or Vimeo with a branded hashtag—#BlueManDrumOff
. Luckily, before all of the fun, I had the chance to speak with Mark Frankel from the legendary Blue Man Group." — @richardinebartee
