2023 SXSW is coming up on March 13-18, and the Taiwan Beats Showcase has announced that it will be held at the Elysium (we’re assuming that’s in the US obviously?) on March 14th from bringing together the most representative and versatile Taiwanese artists including Elephant Gym and others for a series of performances.
Taiwan Beats Showcase is a project initiated by the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development (BAMID) and organized by Young Team Productions. In 2021 and 2022, it blurred the boundary between reality and virtuality by taking top contemporary Taiwanese artists to locations ranging from indoor shrimping grounds to temples and historical sites, to film their live performances that were later streamed online. This year, Taiwan Beats Showcase is returning to SXSW live with six of the most topical bands and artists from Taiwan, to showcase the music scene and experience unique to the island from Asia: ever-self-reinventing math rock band Elephant Gym, jazz singer-songwriter 9m88, poetic alternative rock band deca joins, nostalgic and romantic trio The Chairs, characteristic dream pop singer LÜCY, and genius newcomer rapper SiNNER MOON.
The most well-known math rock trio Elephant Gym, who have extensive experience in SXSW in the past, will be performing on their new album ‘Dreams’, showcasing their never-ending creativity and excellence in performing techniques.
