Big Picture Media Announces Lineup For 8th Annual Texas Takeover Events

By  | 

Big Picture Media will return to Texas for the 8th year in a row, putting on two FREE showcases! Both events will take place at The Blind Pig Rooftop (317 E 6th St.) – right in the center of all the action! The first showcase will be Tuesday, March 17th from 2PM – 6PM and the second on Thursday, March 19th from 12PM – 6PM. Both showcases are sponsored by Foxtales, who will be providing an interactive photo booth for fans to use during the performances!

While the line-ups highlight bands from many different genres, they all have one thing in common – each puts on a performance that will leave you wanting more!

Tuesday’s showcase will feature acts including punk rock legends Cancer Bats, San Francisco rockers Down and Outlaws, Austin’s own buzz band Holiday Mountain, Scottish alternative rockers Fatherson, as well as Chicago’s AyOH, Brooklyn bands Great Caesar and Samantha, and Los Angeles’ Xu Xu Fang.

Thursday’s showcase is full of on the rise acts including Houston’s award-winning 10-piece The Suffers, alongside San Luis Obispo rockers Night Riots, New York City’s indie pop group PARLOUR TRICKS, The Frail + Survival Guide from San Francisco, Fictionist from Utah, Canada’s Lucette, and Plaid Brixx from Columbus, OH. One of Big Picture Media alumni clients will be the surprise guest performance that will be closing out the showcase! Full lineups and set-times for both showcases are listed below.

Last year’s Big Picture Media showcase took place right in the center of it all, on the roof of The Blind Pig where guests sipped margaritas, snapped photos in the official Foxtales photobooth and jammed out for 6 solid hours of incredible performances. Each and every year, the Big Picture Media SXSW lineup gets bigger and better! This year, we are featuring bands who have been heralded in the press by The New York Times, Vice, NPR, The Village Voice, The Wall Street Journal, Vice, Buzzfeed, and beyond.
