During SXSW this year, KEXP returned to Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop and teamed up with Distiller Promo, Sub Pop Records + Hardly Art, and Merge Records for three days of free showcases featuring Dum Dum Girls, Wye Oak, Black Lips, La Luz, Hurray for the Riff Raff and many others. Between sets, we asked each band to chat and share some of their SXSW moments and let us, and you, know what’s going on with them in the future. Watch the first gathering of our interviews here and more below. Special thanks to Windows Phone for letting us use the new Lumia Icon to film.
