Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds to Play SXSW: NPR Music Showcase at Stubb’s: North American Tour in Support of Push The Sky Away to Begin March 13 in Austin
We are pleased to announce that Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will be kicking off their 2013 North American tour at SXSW on Wednesday, March 13. Cave and company will perform this year's NPR showcase at Stubb's, supporting their 15th studio album, Push The Sky Away (out Feb 18th on Bad Seed Ltd).
Nick Cave is an internationally acclaimed author, composer, screenwriter and actor. In recent years, Cave wrote the screenplays for The Proposition and Lawless, while he and Warren Ellis scored The Proposition, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and The Road. The two more recently presented the Lawless soundtrack featuring Cave/Ellis originals and classic compositions performed by The Bootleggers and the likes of Ralph Stanley, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris and more.
On Tuesday, 12th March, in conjunction with his SXSW performance, SXSW Film and Music will host Nick Cave in Conversation with New York based author Larry Ratso Sloman. Sloman's numerous collaborators include Howard Stern, David Blaine, magic historian William Kalush and Anthony Kiedis of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he worked on the memoir Scar Tissue. Sloman also wrote an account of Bob Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour, On the Road with Bob Dylan, and penned Reefer Madness, a history of marijuana use in the United States.
