Little Roy Hits SXSW Festival!

For all the hubbub about the big names (Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Fiona Apple, Jack White, 50 Cent, The Shins, Santigold, etc.) playing the SXSW Festival this year, it's incredibly cool to see that an old school reggae artist like Little Roy is playing there on Friday, March 16 on an all-British reggae bill (click on the image to enlarge).

No doubt, Little Roy will be performing many cuts off his recent and brilliant Battle for Seattle album (which is all-Nirvana covers done in a roots reggay style--sounds weird on paper, but it works amazingly well!). Read The Duff Guide to Ska rave about the record here.

So, if you're already planning to be at SXSW this year--or live anywhere near Austin--make it down to this showcase at all costs!

And definitely catch Santigold, while yer at it!
