Dirtblonde – the Only Liverpool band at SXSW 2009?

The organisers of South By Southwest (SXSW) finally released a comprehensive list of bands performing at SXSW 2009, and it seems that – so far – Dirtblonde are the only band from Liverpool performing at this year’s event! (ex-The La’s Mike Badger is also playing, but as a solo performer)

Big responsability then, considering the Liverpool bands who played last year – The Rascals, The Wombats and The Sonic Hearts!

Thankfully, it seems people are taking a liking for Dirtblonde in the US…at least a few sources have namechecked the band amongst their early favorites for the festival, alongside bigger names such as Little Boots and White Lies!

New York-based Consequence Of Sound webzine listed Dirtblonde alongside Little Boots, Black Lips and Enter Shikari as one of their early favorites – view here!

And the blog of the Los Angeles Times newspaper also highlighted Dirtblonde alongside White Lies, out of dozens of British acts. View here!

That’s pretty cool. We hope more mentions and positive press keep coming our way!

And if you’re in the UK – watch out for new Dirtblonde tour dates prior to SXSW!
