It’s the clash of the Canadians when Toronto based labels Paper Bag Records and Upper Class Recordings team up to showcase this year at SXSW. Paper Bag Records is responsible for breaking such bands as Tokyo Police Club and Under Byen, and this year they will be bringing Sally Shapiro, The Acorn, and Laura Barrett along with them. Cadence Weapon, The Russian Futurists, and The Cansecos will also be representing the Canadians from the Upper Class side.
