Info:

TUNNG made waves throughout the UK and across the Atlantic with their excellent debut album "Mother's Daughter and Other Songs", released on Static Caravan to heaps of critical acclaim. The album has been licensed stateside by Ace Fu and is scheduled for release on February 22. On the forefront of the "folktronic" movement, they all but necessitated the coining of the term, and we're proud to have them as our guests for this party.

Austin's MY EDUCATION have long been favorites of the Tonevendor / Clairecords staff, not to mention countless fans and critics worldwide. Their debut self-released CD sold out quickly, and was thusly re-issued by Thirty Ghosts Records, along with their follow-up album "Italian". Their performance at SXSW 2005 caught the attention of Rolling Stone's David Fricke, who praised them up and down, calling their performance his surprise find of the year. They'll be bringing their awesome instrumental grandeur to the party, as well as our nighttime showcase - believe me, you'll want to catch both sets!

RACHEL GOLDSTAR is the solo project of Rachel Staggs, precisely one-half of Clairecords' duo EAU CLAIRE. She and her band will be performing a set of her solo material, combined with select tunes from MONSTER MOVIE and EAU CLAIRE as well. Her live band features ex-members of POLYPHONIC SPREE and THE SWELLS.

We should also be having free food & drinks at this event - we know you love free stuff, especially beer and snacks!!

SCIFLYER will be performing material from their deep catalog, including tracks from their latest release "The Age of Lovely, Intimate Things" and some new material as well. They are on tour across the western half of the US to and from Austin, where they will make their SXSW debut.

THE BROTHER KITE have been making waves everywhere since the release of their debut album "thebrotherkite" on Clairecords. During that time, the band have changed their name (formerly also known as "thebrotherkite"), seen a 2nd pressing of their album, and built their own recording studio from the ground-up! They'll be performing material from their highly-anticipated 2nd album, due this fall on Clairecords, which should also see a Japanese issue as well.

BELONG are the latest signings to Carpark Records, and their debut album "October Language" was just released February 8. Their sound follows in the tradition of fuzzed-out folks like My Bloody Valentine, Flying Saucer Attack, and Spacemen 3. Yet if you asked Belong about their sources of inspiration they would say contemporary composer William Basinski or Fennesz. We at Tonevendor and Clairecords are more than pleased to have them as our guests for this showcase.

RACHEL GOLDSTAR is the solo project of Rachel Staggs, precisely one-half of EAU CLAIRE. She and her band will be performing a set of her solo material, combined with select tunes from MONSTER MOVIE and EAU CLAIRE as well. Her live band features ex-members of POLYPHONIC SPREE and THE SWELLS.

LUMINOUS ORANGE came all the way from Japan just to make an incredible appearance at CMJ 2004 in NYC. Too bad almost nobody was there to see it. Ever the longtime fans of this band though, us Clairecords folks wouldn't have missed it for the world. When we found out they would be playing at SXSW 2006, we begged for them to appear along with our bands on our showcase. We'll be honored to have them launch the night off with a live set of their sonic assault that perfectly combines ear-bleeding shoegaze noisepop with sugarsweet indiepop melodies.
