Support for KUTX at SXSW 2023 comes from PNC Bank and Chattanooga Whiskey
It’s safe to assume that us at KUTX aren’t the only ones exhausted after SXSW 2023. But as part of our obligation to provide the Austin Music Experience, we can’t just let last week’s handful of sessions exist strictly as a memory. So instead we’re revisiting some of our favorite moments from the legendary Scholz Garten to help you through the next five days of Spring Break recovery.
If you missed it in person or on-air, our live broadcast on Wednesday morning ended with a bang thanks to Son Rompe Pera. The Mexico City cross-genre quintet dropped in bright and early to marinate the Garten gang in some mallet-manic marimba topped with hypnotic percussion, pulsating bass intervals, and various western spices. Still riding high on the release of their sophomore full-length Chimborazo the previous weekend, Son Rompe Pera unsurprisingly sizzled especially hard on the new material. And although the feature-laden baker’s dozen on Chimborazo is arguably best enjoyed front to back, you can revive your love of Latin language live performances with the Scholz Garten rendition of “La Muerte Del Amor” in a video from our amazing multi-media team.
