Heading to South By Southwest this month? Lucky you. Most of Clash will be sat at home, drinking lukewarm tea and wondering when spring’s going to kick into gear. But not all of us…
Because, you sunburn-and-BBQ-loving conference-goers you, Clash has got not one but two parties going on at this year’s shindig in Austin, Texas. The first is sure to get your ears ringing; the second consider it the comedown.
Our first event is in partnership with Relentless - you may well be aware of their energy drink. Believe us when we tell you you’ll need a few to get through this little lot in one piece…

Clash Vs Relentless / Thursday March 19 / Midday ‘til 6pm
Where: The Dirty Dog, 505 6th Street, Austin TX 78701
Playing live: GALLOWS, Dananananaykroyd, Micachu And The Shapes, Juliette Lewis and the New Romantiques, Turbo Wolf, Fighting With Wire
Debuting new material from their forthcoming ‘Grey Britain’ LP, out on May 4th, Gallows plan to hit Austin’s 6th Street with their very own breed of vitriolic and snarled-up punk.
Elsewhere on the line-up there’s the wonky delight of the much-tipped Micachu, the uncompromising Fighting With Wire, Glasgow’s purveyors of ‘Fight Pop’ the one and only Dananananaykroyd and energetic openers Turbo Wolf.
We have also rustled up an exclusive set from the returning Juliette Lewis who is bringing her band The New Romantiques.
It’s free entry, with complementary refreshments, but most importantly this party is forging innovative and cutting edge music. Expect a road block.
