:@SXSW Prepares for a #Classic2014 via @BrooklynVegan ~ #music #events

[ 8GZRVZBS3KJN ] Will 2014 be the the most Classic Britpop SXSW ever? Probably not — 1995 or 1996 editions likely win there — but many of that era’s leading lights will be in Austin in a couple weeks.

The documentary Pulp, about the Sheffield band of the same name, will make its U.S. debut at SXSW with two screenings: the Vimeo Theater on Sunday, March 9 (7 PM), and then the Stateside Theatre on Wednesday, March 12 (7 PM). The film is directed by Florian Habicht and was made with the band. Will Jarvis be in attendence? Quite possibly, as earlier in the day on 3/12, Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker will be speaking at the Convention Center (room 18ABC) where he’ll present a talk called “Extra Ordinary” which is “an illustrated selection of his lyrics detailing his development as a songwriter and provides useful tips for aspiring songsmiths.” That’s open to music badges.

The night before that (3/12) Jarvis and Pulp bassist Steve Mackey will bring their “Desperate Sound System” DJ night to the Hype Hotel. While the focus is on spinning records, Jarvis is apparently chatty on the mic as well. They’ll be on around 9 PM. RSVP for the whole week of Hype Hotel excitement. [ Read it ALL on … ]
