The last few weeks saw an estimated 75,000 people converge on Austin, Texas for one of the country’s biggest music and media festivals, SXSW. Filmmakers, tech gurus and, of course, musicians from all over the world came to show us their stuff, bringing make-it-or-break-it attitudes to the heart of Texas in an effort to score that big deal. It’s crazy, crowded, and sometimes downright bizarre, but it has become a staple of Austin music culture and possibly the most anticipated event of the year.
TsuShiMaMiRe mixes elements of punk, funk, hip hop, pop and even children’s songs to create their own unique and eclectic sound. This alternative girls rock trio formed in 1998 has never seen a single lineup change and it shows with a groove that’s tight as a drum. Full of charisma and quirk, this is a band you surely don’t want to miss. Find the full interview and tour dates below the break.
