Ra Ra Riot, the RAC and SXSW

On Wednesday afternoon, my story on the Remix Artist Collective (RAC) will hit the Riverfront Times' main homepage. The RAC's founder and main remixer, Andre Anjos, attends Greeville College.

One of the group's he's remixed is Ra Ra Riot, whose heartfelt, string-laden indie-rock has started to earn it some serious attention in music circles. The band is also playing a ton of shows at SXSW:

Wednesday March 12th: Austin Convention Center, 5 p.m. Wednesday March 12th: Todd P Party @ Ms. Beas, 9:30 p.m. Thursday March 13th: Saddle Creek/Arts & Crafts/The Onion/Canvas Media Party @ Emos, 1:55pm Friday March 14th: Soundcheck Magazine Party @ Emos Annex, 2:30 p.m. Saturday March 15th: Diesel Party @ Saengerrunde Hall 8:50 p.m. Saturday March 15th: Park the Van/Daytrotter Party @ Emos Annex, 10 p.m.

For your listening enjoyment, here are two MP3s:

MP3: Ra Ra Riot, "Can You Tell (Live on WOXY)"

MP3: Ra Ra Riot, "Each Year (RAC mix)"
