I’ve told you before that Polly Mackey & the Pleasure Principle are returning to the SXSW Music Festival in Texas again in March and like last year they are packing in the gigs. The SXSW Festival is the world’s largest music festival and conference; it’s renowned across the globe as being the biggest showcase of both unsigned and signed international acts with over 80 venues across the city of Austin hosting nearly 2000 acts.

So why is it such a big deal to play there? Well, the 2,500+ music industry suits who attend every year is probably something to do with it, if there is anywhere in the world where you’d want to make a buzz with your music, then here without doubt is the place to do it.

Polly and her band did extremely well last year and raised a lot of interest which led to a number of opportunities in 2009, so this year it’s on for sure. She’s managed to bag the first performance of the whole festival (last year Flight of the Conchords held this spot) at the Four Seasons hotel, which guarantees a throng of suits in attendance and Polly is also representing Wales at the British Music Embassy Party.

The bands visit coincides with the release of their first single to be taken from their debut EP release, which is in the final stages of production.
