Rumor spreadin’ ‘round…in that Texas town…

The rumor is true: Marfa Myths is back in 2019 with a line-up that makes other weekenders look like a turn spent fixing the lawnmower followed by a jaunt to Baja Fresh with your boss and his step-son. Established in 2014 by non-profit organization and cultural arts space Ballroom Marfa and Brooklyn-based indie label Mexican Summer, Marfa Myths is a multi-disciplinary festival, curated with care and now entering its sixth installment.

If you need a reason to visit this lovely far west Texas town (three hours south-east of El Paso), here’s SEVERAL: Marfa Myths 2019 will take place from April 25-28, 2019 and includes performances by Khruangbin, Deerhunter, Annette Peacock, Cass McCombs, Vivien Goldman, Tim Hecker & The Konoyo Ensemble, Träd, Gräs och Stenar, Photay, Jess Williamson, and more. Additional acts are expected to be announced in the new year.

One of Marfa Myths’ more inspired features is its musicians in residence program that pairs two amenable acts to play and record. 2019’s MiR will present none other than skilled psych-boffins Drugdealer and Tim Presley (White Fence). Along for the festivities are visual artist in residence Natalie Anne Howard, and respective painter and woodworker in residence (and fabulous musicians in their own right) Connan Mockasin and Cate Le Bon. A portion of the festival’s proceeds will be going to support the very worthwhile local nonprofit organization Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA).

Early bird tickets are sold out, but full-price single day tickets and festival passes are available here. A quickie trailer and the line-up so far are shown below. All the info you need for Marfa Myths 2019 can be found here.
