Cannot wait for this show!
From SXSW Music News:
SXSW is proud to announce yet another groundbreaking label showcase for SXSW ’08!
In the early 1970’s, Darondo seemed to have the world at his diamond ring covered fingertips. He released three singles to much critical acclaim, 7” 45’s in fact, and then virtually disappeared. His records were highly sought after for years by collectors and when Ubiquity found the man behind the many myths, they inked a deal and reissued the singles with a few unreleased tracks Darondo found in his archives. He did his first show in 25 years in mid-December in San Francisco and we are ecstatic to announce that he will be in Austin with us this coming March.
The bill is rounded out by some incredible soul, jazz and funk that the label has become known for. Connie Price and the Keystones, Orgonne, The Lions and rapper Ohmega Watts are all on deck for this priceless showcase.
Check out a Darando tune that I posted back in Feb. '06 and one from Ohmega Watts that was about the 10th tune that I posted on CubikMusik back in August '05. How time flies yet the tunes are still great.
