Speaking of festivals that aim to squeeze a little North Texas shine out of SXSW's excess, Parade of Flesh has announced today another round of acts booked to play his annual post-SXSW bash, Bro Fest, which will take place this year on Sunday March, 20, on both the indoor and outdoor stages at Club Dada.
Joining the all-female super-group Wild Flag, who announced their participation in the day-long deal back in December, and Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler's pre-Raconteurs act The Greenhornes, who announced their addition to the bill last week, are another 10 acts that were announced early this morning, including electro-pop act Dom, freak-folk outfit Castanets and metal act Grooms.
Not too shabby -- especially since John Iskander, the man behind Parade of Flesh, indicates that more bands could be added as the festival approaches. Considering how good a time last year's deal was, featuring performances from SXSW breakout acts Sleepy Sun, The Soft Pack, Dum Dum Girls, Woven Bones and Those Darlins, we've got high hopes for this year's event, too.
After the jump, check out the full lineup, as has been announced thus far, plus information on how to get your passes.
