The Sunshine Underground rock the SXSW in their first ever U.S. appearance

The Sunshine Underground at SXSW

Playing the first-ever U.S. showcase, Leeds-based indie rockers, The Sunshine Underground (official web site) certainly didn’t disappoint. Launching into a feel good set at NME’s SXSW event, TSU showed why they’re certainly one’s to watch in 2007.

The band is Craig Wellington on lead guitar and vocals, Stuart Jones on guitar, Daley Smith on bass, and Matthew Gwilt on drums.

The setting; the outdoor stage at Stubb’s, a BBQ joint on Red River Road in Austin. It was the perfect venue to air their funky, brit-rock sound. I was able to grab video of the song “Commercial Breakdown” from the band’s debut album, Raise The Alarm.. Check it out below.

Here are more pics from the show:
