Hooray for Earth – Under the Radar’s SXSW Party Spotlight
Under the Radar's SXSW Parties Kick Off March 14 at Flamingo Cantina
On March 14 Under the Radar will host the first of three free SXSW Day parties sponsored by PRS Guitars. Leading up to the event we're letting you know about each artist playing. Today we're spotlighting Hooray for Earth.
In a previous post we gave you the basic party details of the party: The party happens from 12:00-6:00 PM at the Flamingo Cantina at 6th and Red River (515 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701). All events are free and open to the public—no RSVPs or badges are required. The first day also features performances from Body Language, Niki & The Dove, Trust, Reggie Watts, and The Love Language. The Drums will be headlining the event. Come early for free beer courtesy of Sapporo USA (while supplies last). Other sponsors include Dorado Music Packaging and Motormouthmedia.
Hooray for Earth combines sweet pop harmonies with crashing guitars and synths? The results? Nothing less than electro-pop bliss. Their album True Loves is a nothing short of a multi-hued dance party. Check out our take on the band’s debut full-length here, or read our interviews with leadman Noel Heroux here and here.
