KORG Announces Their SXSW Showcase

Each year I tell myself that I will make it out to SXSW and each year I fail to attend due to other commitments mainly to prep for the start of the motorsports season. This year unfortunately, I will again miss out on a trip to Austin and am even more upset after hearing news of KORG’s SXSW Showcase.

Korg has put out great musical products for over 50 years and this year they will be celebrating in Austin with their /Fuse Frequency Showcase at the venue, “Cielo.” The event is open to the public and features an amazing collection live performances by artists including: Idle Warship (Talib Kweli + Res), Dawn Richard, Schoolboy Q, J*DaVeY, Trevor Wesley, Cool Roy and 9th Wonder with Terrace Martin. There will be a special debut performance by REDi.

I guess there’s always next year…
