SXSW preview: World Party

February 18th, 2011 · 1 Comment

World Party front man Karl Wallenger returns to Austin for this year’s South By Southwest. It’s been a decade since the band released new music, but Wallenger’s showcase will undoubtedly bring out long-time fans and well-wishers.

Wallenger was a member of British band The Waterboys, but left the group in the mid-80s to form World Party, which had a few hits of its own. Check out some videos below.

“Message In The Box”

“Private Revolution”

World Party plays its official SXSW 2011 showcase on Friday, 3.18.11, at 7pm at the Auditorium Shores Stage (Lady Bird Lake). Visit the band online at www.worldparty.net.
