// Track: "Dimitri Mendeleev" by Astronautalis
Alongside the new-band competition going on in the Entry — featuring Prissy Clerks, Xavier Marquis and the Japhies — Vita.mn’s Are You Local? showcase also doubles as a send-off party in the main room for some of the local scene’s most buzzingest acts headed to South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. The lineup features Bon Iver’s local Jagjaguwar labelmates Peter Wolf Crier, transplanted indie-rap star and freestyle master Astronautalis, pop/punk darlings Pink Mink, guitars-blazing power-trio the Blind Shake and eclectic boy/girl art-pop ensemble Fort Wilson Riot.
Sponsors include: Luther Fiat, IPR, Crispin, and 89.3 The Current
