Jang Kiha and the Faces will be joining other local alternative Korean artists, Nell and IDOTAPE, as part of the 2014 South By Southwest (SXSW)’s “K-Pop Night Out” showcase. SXSW Music is the largest music festival of its kind in the world.
Jang Kiha and the Faces first debuted in 2008 with the mini-album “Cheap Coffee” and has gradually become one of South Korea’s most popular indie rock bands.
The line-up is only preliminary as more Korean acts are still expected to participate in the upcoming event. Last year’s SXSW “K-Pop Night Out” highlighted a wide variety of Korean music with performing acts such as Galaxy Express, Guckkasten, 3rd Line Butterfly, The Geeks, f(x), Yi Sung-yol and Jeong Cha-sik.
The annual SXSW has been held during the spring in Austin, Texas since 1987. It is North America’s largest music, film, and interactive conference and festival. The festival will showcase approximately around 1,000 different artists and acts from around the world during the 10-day festival.
The upcoming 2014 SXSW event will be held from March 7 ― 16, 2013 in Austin, TX. The Music Panels and Music Fest showcases portion of the event will begin on Tuesday, March 11th, 2014.
