SXSW 2012 Preview

The UniqueSquared Mobile Studio team will be traveling to Austin, TX in March to take part in SXSW. With so much going on, we decided to provide a little preview of what to expect so you don’t get lost along the way.


This year will be different than last, and the Mobile Studio will be following a band during their travels the week leading up to SXSW. The band, Ambassadors, are a Brooklyn based band traveling with the Lights on her US tour. They will be stopping through Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston on their way to Austin, and the UniqueSquared Mobile Studio will be traveling with them on their journey. While on the road, the Mobile Studio team will document Ambassadors‘ experiences and record a track on the Mobile Studio during one of their stops.


While at SXSW, the UniqueSquared Mobile Studio will be teaming up with Sennheiser and provide a full listening station at their event with Paste Magazine. The eighth annual, Stages on Sixth, will take place between March 14th – 16th. This event is Free Entry and will have 11 bands performing each day. Some notable acts performing are Built to Spill, Glen Hansard, and Ben Kweller. More information on how to RSVP can be found on Paste Magazine’s website.


Thursday March 15th, we will be hanging out with Exploded Drawing at the Volstead Lounge. Exploded Drawing are a group of MPC Enthusiasts and the Mobile Studio team will be there with the MPC Fly. This event is hosted by AKAI and is sure to be a huge hit for fellow MPC lovers down in Austin.

Whether we are following an artist, checking out a show, or talking new gear, the UniqueSquared Mobile Studio will be in full force in Austin, TX. Be sure to stop by and say hello if you happen to spot a the bus with a big blue “U” on the side.
