Under the Radar magazine is excited to reveal the full lineups, posters, and set times for its two SXSW day parties, taking place on Thursday, March 17th and Friday, March 18th. The Thursday party, which is presented by JanSport, will feature the only SXSW 2011 performance by Atlas Sound (aka Deerhunter's Bradford Cox), who will be headlining. The rest of Thursday's lineup includes The Dears, The Dodos, Sondre LercheYuck, Violens, and Lord Huron.

The Friday party, which is presented by Shure, will be headlined by Okkervil River. Friday's lineup is rounded out by Owen Pallett, Menomena, Telekinesis, Surfer Blood, Hooray for Earth, and Porcelain Raft.

The parties will happen from 12 - 6 PM at the Flamingo Cantina (515 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701). March 17th also happens to be the birthday of Dears frontman Murray Lightburn and his birthday will be celebrated at the Thursday party. Both events are free and open to the public, no RSVP or badges are required. Other sponsors include Dorado Music Packaging, Motormouthmedia, and Cravedog.

This is the sixth year in a row that Under the Radar has hosted a party at SXSW. The party lineups have slowly been teased in the last week on our website via games of hangman, in which some of the performers were revealed by readers guessing one letter at a time.

We wish! We had him on the bill, but then it turned out he wasn’t going to be in Austin after all. The info on his site is incorrect, unfortunately. (Thanks for bringing this to our attention)

The March 18th lineup is hands down the best lineup I’ve seen at a day party. Can’t wait.
