Australian songwriter Ohad Rein has performed at SXSW in the past, both as a touring member of Gelbison (2004) and fronting his own band, Old Man River (2005). Rein and his band, which includes former Noise Addict drummer Saul Smith, will once again be returning to Austin to play SXSW according to the band’s MySpace page.
Got an email from Tilly & The Wall this evening confirming their participation at SXSW though exact details haven’t been revealed yet.
And, Austin stoner-rockers Lions, whose song “Metal Heavy Lady” is featured on Guitar Hero 3, are playing the High Times party and will undoubtedly play a million shows over the course of 4 days.
Lions – “Metal Heavy Lady” (no, that’s NOT Triumph’s Mike Levine on bass!)
