Preview SXSW 23 Catching Bands T-Y

Japanese artists are on my mind as I post this final SXSW 23 preview. Also, some other great female musicians make themselves heard in a big way. I hope these posts have helped make any attendee decide on which shows will be fun!

Melbourne, Australia
Schedule for Woodes

Woodes will be worth checking out just for her clothing itself, but she’s also a wonderful pop artist. Not sure if she will work some creative outfits into her set – maybe? The producer/songwriter draws from different arts, and incorporates them into her presence.

Tokyo, Japan
Schedule for YU-KA

Singer-songrwriter YU-KA will have her first tour of the US this year. Welcome, YU-KA! Last year, she had a huge hit with the song “No Stars.”
