Portland Does SXSW: Phone Call

Portland Does SXSW: Phone Call

 South by Southwest is one of the biggest music festivals leading into the summer season. It's historically been known to be one of the best tools for propelling up and coming artists into the next phase, or bringing back some loved artists for new eyes and ears. Portland's representation at the festival may not be high in numbers but it is ecclectic in offerings.

One of the city's fun acts playing the fest is Phone Call, our 5 year old local funky, r&b electronic duo that's been making hips move while also making us laugh with some of their lyrics. Delightfully minimalistic in its execution, Phone Call's sounds are the perfect display for the usual sensual themes found in their songs.

It's all in good fun, and you can catch Phone Call post-SXSW at The Fixin To' on March 24 with Coronation and Gold Casio. Dancing options are promised to be available.
