2011 SXSW Audible Treats Wrap-Up

(March 29, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Returning to Austin, Texas for the third time, premier marketing and publicity firm Audible Treats is happy to announce the success of not only one but two official showcases. Audible Treats produced their 2nd annual hip-hop showcase in conjunction with Blacksmith Music with headliners Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Zion I & The Grouch, Black Milk, and Opio and Casual on Thursday night, followed by their first hip-hop and electro-indie hybrid showcase, co-curated by PrefixMag.com the following night with headliners Acrylics and J*Davey. Both showcases were marked by major giveaways and a number of special guests who helped to pack the venues.


Hieroglyphics – “Exciting”

With the legendary Hieroglyphics crew’s West Coast Tour, presented by Marvel vs. Capcom 3 well underway and going well, the Bay-Area supergroup are releasing a new song “Exciting” in conjunction with a Hiero-inspired hooded varsity jacket from Akomplice Clothing. Taking their already popular hooded varsity jacket, Akomplice has created a unique version bearing both the Hiero and Akomplice logo. Creating the original track “Exciting” just for the occasion, the collaboration shows off the talents of what both parties do best.


MP3: Hieroglyphics – Reputation

Bay-Area super group Hieroglyphics are back in a big way, releasing a new song “Reputation” in conjunction with a series of paintings inspired by the group from When Art Imitates Life (W.A.I.L.) – Hiero served as the guiding creative force behind the Hieroglyphics Legacy and Monument Series paintings. From music to art to clothing collaborations, and more, the legendary Hiero crew has certainly earned quite a “Reputation,” and the aptly named song celebrates the Hiero legacy. This no-frills track is all about the flow; synthy guitar riffs and bare bones beats leave the listener free to focus on the killer verses – these seasoned veterans need no embellishment. “Sorry that we kept you waiting… sort of like a test of patience/had to come up with the best arrangement,” A-Plus tells fans, who definitely won’t hold the group’s absence against them with a new track out and their upcoming West Coast tour to look forward to.


In the coming weeks, Hiero will be embarking on a six-date West Coast tour, presented by Marvel’s Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

The Dates:

Friday Jan 21st – San Diego, CA, Soundwave (21+)

Saturday Jan 22nd – Flagstaff, AZ, The Green Room (21+)

Sunday Jan 23rd – Los Angeles, CA, Key Club (18+)
