Domino Records, the UK’s most respectable independent label, returns to SXSW this year as a showcase presenter at Austin’s famed dive, Emo’s. The showcase, on Thursday, March 17, will feature new Domino recording artist, Austra (with the NSFW video below), King Creosote, Anna Calvi, Cass McCombs, The Kills and Owen Pallett.
I expect a great deal of classy debauchery and filthy eyeliner. Scotland’s King Creosote opens, and then classically trained dark pop Austra will play, initiating the gathered to their debut album “Feel It Break” which releases May 17, 2011. I’m not sure about the show yet, but this video for “Beat and the Pulse” is NSFW.
