‘Drive The Noize’ SXSW 2015 Showcase
Hydrive Shows is proud to present our 4th annual SXSW showcase, March 21, at Crave Restaurant from 12:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m. After a long week, come kick back and rehydrate!
Hydrive is a grassroots organization of fans who decided the best way to see shows was to throw their own. Founded in 2012, Hydrive has grown to be one of the most prominent promotion companies in the Twin Cities area and has presented more than 60 national headliners. With a dedicated and passionate team, we help brands and artists acquire the buzz they crave.
CRAVE Restaurant was built out of a passion to create a dining experience unlike any other. A dining experience where quality, local and regionally sourced food, chic atmosphere, and diverse choices offer guests the opportunity to create their own unforgettable dining experience. The energy of the restaurant is all encompassing–the buzz of guests and staff, the warm and open design, the modern sushi bar, the fresh spin on American cuisine with seasonality, and the sense of discovery around every corner.
This is an unofficial SXSW Showcase. Attendees should RSVP for the showcase in order to be admitted. Entrance is FREE of charge – RSVP does not guarantee entrance. Performance starts at 12:00 p.m.

As one fourth of the new Los Angeles based collective Athletixx, Promnite has many exciting surprises on the horizon, including collaborations with Alizzz, Mr Carmack, Falcons and more.
Pusher (Toronto, Canada) – From Toronto, Canada, ‘Pusher’ blends styles and sounds spanning much of electronic music and extending back into older styles of Rock, Jazz, Classical, and beyond to connect to the ageless human musical condition.
Vaski (Minneapolis, MN) – Vaski is the young Beatport chart-topping, Minneapolis-based producer known for his previous releases on Excision’s Rottun Recordings. He got his foot in the door with Dubstep, but now his sound has become so much more. His early influences ranged from everything to metalcore, indie, and hip-hop. Vaski’s latest work, the ‘Explorer’ EP features him exploring more electro-house and hiphop sounds, while maintaining the hardcore sound he’s known for. He has toured over three continents and his sound has been heard throughout the world. His tracks have gotten regular support from names like Excision, Flux Pavilion, 12th Planet, Diplo, Rusko, Nero, and Kill the Noise.
