Pittsburgh-based band 28 North, and one talent network, inc. has had great success with, are hitting SXSW this week, opening up for TV on the Radio in SPIN Magazine’s showcase on March 18.

While working on their fourth album, “A Long Walk Home,” 28 North attended several SPIN Magazine functions, acquiring many connections along the way: “We played their CMJ show with ace producer Daniel Lanois in October, so they knew that we brought the fury!” (The band is even pictured in March’s issue of SPIN Magazine). This led to the band’s being invited to perform in the SPIN Showcase at SXSW with TV on the Radio. On Friday, March 18, 28 North will be hitting the stage at Stubb’s, a venue the band “dreamt of playing” since they played at SXSW last year with Crash Kings. In a 30-minute set, jam-packed with their “catchiest material,” 28 North will be sure to play the single off their new record, “Call Me Up,” which is available to download for free at www.28northnet.com. Among other songs that will be heard: “Trails,” “Brother,” “Charlotte,” and mostly new songs with a choice throwback, possibly “Pride.”

Hoping to gain national attention, the talented 28 North will be networking with the vast number of bands and musicians attending SXSW: “Considering the amount of touring we do, we really want to hook up with bands all over the USA!” With such an immense list of musicians to be seen and heard at the festival, 28 North says they are excited to see TV on the Radio, The Kills, OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark), and DJ Skillrex.

28 North’s fourth album, “A Long Walk Home,” will be released soon, and they are currently on tour. Dates and more information is available on 28 North's website.

And don’t forget you can download 28 North's new single, “Call Me Up” for free here.

SXSW's Music runs from March 15-20 and features a massive amount of musicians. Check out the SXSW Music Schedule here.

Other Pittsburghers aside from 28 North performing at SXSW include Lovebettie, Wiz Khalifa, The Cynics (Get Hip Showcase with The Ugly Beats, The Mullens and more), and 1,2,3 (featuring Nic Snyder and Josh Sickels of Takeover UK).
