ABOUT THE CLOSE ENCOUNTER CLUB AT SXSW ONLINE 2021
This official SXSW showcase marks another important milestone in The Close Encounter Club’s trajectory, with the project continuing to thrive in 2020, adapting and innovating in the wake of a global pandemic. In October last year The Mysterines performed at The Club’s immersive two-way live stream, where the bands performing were able to see and hear their audience at home. Alongside this they also premiered live sessions from a host of other acts including Willie J Healey, Katy J Pearson, Porridge Radio and Mysie, helping to propel The Close Encounter Club’s voyage of new music discovery into the stratosphere. The footage was filmed at Battersea Arts Centre in South London in a Covid-safe environment following strict guidelines from APA earlier this year.
