Polly Mackey & The Pleasure Principle
Polly and the band at SXSW

Polly & the Pleasure Principle had a massively successful SXSW Festival in Texas with 9 performances in 5 days culminating in a showcase performance at The Liverpool Sound City day party at Latitude 30.

Chosen by the British Music Embassy as one of five bands to represent the North West at Liverpool Sound City’s SXSW showcase, Polly and the band joined Manchester’s The Whip and Liverpool’s The Hot Melts to play to a sell-out venue with queues circling the block on a one-out, one-in basis.

The band have just announced a number of showcase gigs in London during April to capitalise on the industry interest generated during SXSW – the most important being a headline gig at the Dublin Castle on 21st April.
