Lethal Bizzle will be flying the flag for the UK urban scene and showing how it’s done this week performing at world renowned music festival SXSW in Austin, Texas. The launch pad for many careers, SXSW is usually an alternative affair with many indie bands clamouring to be showcased and be discovered as the ‘Next Best Thing’.
Lethal is out there to showcase tracks from his new album ‘Back To Bizznizz‘ on V2 Music, June 07. “I’m really excited to be going out there”, says Lethal. “I’m gonna murk the SXSW Festival and make the US stand up and pay attention to what we’ve got going on over here”.
Performing at 3 shows on the 15th to 17th March, Lethal Bizzle’s performance will be as energetic and as lively as usual and will definitely be the highlight of the festival (see specific details below).
Comic Relief this year looks set to be the usual round of pop band performances and people sitting in a bath of beans for £2.50, but look a little closer at the schedule and you’ll see Top Gear Of The Pops. On Friday 16th March, 10pm BBC2, Lethal will be performing his single Mr. on this special Comic Relief edition of the popular car show.
