March 13 at Austin’s St. David’s Historical Sanctuary will mark a) the first Perfume Genius show of 2014 and b) a chance to hear post-‘Put Your Back N 2 It’ material for the first time. Not that we know the evening’s repertoire in advance or anything. The show is presented/programmed by Turnstile Music and will also feature performances from Christopher Owens, Gruff Rhys, Cate Le Bon and others.
We’ll be updating you on other Matador artists’ participation during SXSW shortly, but at the moment it looks as though EMA, Kurt Vile, Fucked Up and The Young will all be playing during the music portion, while Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks and EMA will in town the prior weekend for SXSW Interactive. When we’ve got everyone’s schedules in full, we’ll share the info.
