JamBase Presents | Claypool Duo De Twang SXSW Pop-Up Sets

By Scott Bernstein Feb 28, 2014 10:40 am PST

In a sure sign that spring is on its way, we’re excited to start rolling out our plans for next month’s SXSW Music 2014 in Austin, TX. We kick things off on Thursday, March 13 with a pair of “pop-up” sets from one of our favorite acts.

SXSW is all about unique live music experiences and we get in on that act with special “pop-up sets” from Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang. Les and Bryan will perform two sets at a yet-to-be-revealed site in Austin on Thursday afternoon. Want to find out where and when they’ll play? We’re not letting you off that easily. Be sure to follow our Facebook & Twitter accounts as we’ll announce the time and place for the Duo de Twang sets just before the performances take place.

Duo de Twang recently released their debut studio album, Four Foot Shack, which Les and Bryan aimed at making sound as “live” as possible instead of relying on studio sweetening. “It was very live,” admits Les in a statement. “In fact, it was a little difficult, with all the bleed of the stomping and the bass and the vocals. Every now and again you can hear the studio refrigerator come on or the dog barking at something outside in the background. Once it was there, you had to kind of leave it.” The pair are currently in the midst of a tour that includes the stint at SXSW.

Listen to the group’s cover of Alice In Chains’s “Man In A Box” off Four Foot Shack:
