Force Field PR will be in full force at SXSW 2006, with many of our finest artists representing and a couple of amazing film events as well.

Be sure to catch the screening of “Jumping Off Bridges” — Force Field owner Daniel Gill handled music supervision duties for the film, and the soundtrack features music from Sufjan Stevens, Amina, Jose Gonzales, The Microphones, Explosions in the Sky, American Analog Set, Allen Clapp, Jeff Hanson, Bosque Brown, KARP, Veronica Lipgloss, Devin Davis and more! Plus, the SXSW screening is the World Premiere!

Also of note is the Danielson movie which documents the careers of Danielson and Sufjan Stevens. Both Asobi Seksu and Frog Eyes are making a total of three (3) appearances in Austin, so you’ll have plenty of chances to see them as Asobi debuts material from their upcoming “Citrus” album and Frog Eyes debut material from their forthcoming album as well.

The big Animal Collective show on Friday night at Fox and Hound is sure to be one of the highlights of the festival this year, and we’re proud to have two artists on the bill – both Ariel Pink and First Nation. Ariel Pink will be joined by backing band Col. Knowledge & the Lickity-Splits whom he met up with in Atlanta on his recent pick-up band tour and liked so much he thought he’d give it another go.
