The Italian wave is here! Well, at least for the 2018 edition of SXSW. From the annuls of a collective named We Were Never Being Boring (WWNBB), a collection of some fab bands will be on display at their showcase on March 14th @ the Velveeta Room (521 E 6th St, Austin Texas). In close concert with BPM Concerti, the 6 fabulous acts will be playing for your listening and viewing pleasure.
Showcase is brought to the SXSW masses between partners BPM and WWNBB.
And there’s more!
After the official showcase, there will also be a followup showcase on March 15th, with the cache of SECRECY about which bands will be featured. Best of all, it’s on a YACHT!

“Since its start in 2009, WWNBB has focused on bringing Italian bands abroad and bands from abroad to Italy. Since the label moved to California and connected with SXSW, more and more bands in our family have made their way to Austin. This year, to bring a little more fun to our fans, we have decided to partner up with our friends at BPM Concerti and organize a boat party where a secret selection of bands from WWNBB and BPM will perform while sailing the Colorado River. Drinks on us (Italian flavors/Italian style), great music, fun times, limited spots.” – Samuele Palazzi, of We Were NEVER Being Boring (WWNBB)
“Here’s Marco, from BPM Concerti, an independent booking and management company based in Italy. Last year I went to SXSW tho check out the situation and I immediately fall in love with this incredible showcase festival. Together with Samuele from WWNBB (one of our beloved partner label) we decided to present a selection of our international acts at SXSW. From the garage rock of The Yellow Traffic Light, to Bruno Belissimo’s italo disco, passing thru psychedelic pop of Weird Bloom and electronic pop of Christaux e Joan Thiele, this showcase will show you the very best of our international roster. In just one night you can taste the variety of our proposal and be surprised by the Italian music scene!” – BMP Concerti
