SXSW (South by Southwest) season is finally upon us and I can feel the excitement in the air! And as the event announcements start rolling in, the first show to spark my fancy is Maceo Plex. RealMusic Events is at it again and starting out the first weekend of SXSW with a BANG!
Maceo’s blend of dark and deep techno is the perfect combination of musical perfection. His sets are always stellar! To say I am super pumped for this Austin show, would be an understatement. I missed his set at Movement last year but had the opportunity to check him out in Houston a few years back. One of my best shows of that year, and that’s saying A LOT considering how many shows I go to! I’m well overdue for another Maceo Plex set in my life.
If you haven’t checked him out yet, well now is as good a time as any. His “Mutant Tour”, announced last month has him traveling all over the US and includes that special SXSW appearance. He is also debuting new and unreleased tracks on the 2019 tour along with a special edition vinyl pack.
Though Maceo Plex is missing from that stacked Movement Electronic Music Festival lineup, an intimate set in Austin is the perfect setting for seeing him live. We all love the festival line-ups where you can see a bunch of your favorite artists in one place, but nothing beats seeing your favorite DJ in a small club setting.
If you’ve never been to SXSW, it’s not just about the music festival; it’s about the club shows, the bar shows, the pop up shows, and the whole spectacle that happens every March in Austin. As the events keep rolling in for the 2019 SXSW musical showcase, I will keep you up to date on where you can see some of the electronic music highlights! If I know anything about Austin and RealMusic Events, there are more surprises in store.
