Our South by Southwest 2011 guide still holds up, but as expected, there are a few last-minute additions. For one, the much-rumored appearance by Kanye West is now official: he’ll hit the stage at 11:59pm Saturday night (or sometime shortly thereafter) as part of Vevo’s Power Station party. Also making an appearance in Austin this week will be Justin Vernon’s pre-Bon Iver collaboration with Megafaun, Deyarmond Edison, who will close out the Fader Fort on Saturday night before Vernon (*presumably*) joins Kanye for a re-imagining of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
And if that weren’t enough, as per a newly posted video teaser, it appears the reunited Death From Above 1979 also have something planned for South by Southwest. While an official announcement is still forthcoming, the band promises something at 1:00AM Saturday night/Sunday morning.
Moral of the story: don’t kill yourself tomorrow.
