Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds have announced that they will be kicking off their North American tour on Wednesday, 13th March at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX. The band will play the NPR Stubb's showcase supporting their 15th studio album 'Push The Sky Away' (out 18th February on Bad Seed Ltd). The first two singles taken from the album: 'We No Who U R' and 'Jubilee Street' are available now.
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 collaborations include radio personality Howard Stern, the magician David Blaine, magic historian William Kalush and The Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis with whom he wrote 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.
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 fellow Bad Seeds Warren Ellis scored The Proposition, The Road and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. The two more recently presented the Lawless soundtrack featuring Cave/Ellis original and classic compositions performed by The Bootleggers and the likes of Ralph STanley, Willie Nelson and more.
This conversation between the two prolific creative forces of Cave and Sloman is not to be missed.
