MXTS 2011 Preview: Welcome, Friends From Across the Pond

Posted in Music and other Arts by Tara Bouley on March 16, 2011

Last, but most definitely not least, we have three bands from across the seas.


The Boxer Rebellion are a London-based group with members from England, Nashville and Australia. They are an understated powerhouse in indie rock — in 2009 they became the first unsigned band to enter the Billboard Top 100 Albums chart with a digital-only release. They will be performing Music by the Slice tomorrow Thursday, March 17th at 1:00 PM.


Fredrik is a Swedish duo, sometimes trio, that creates layered, electronic, folky, atmospheric soundscapes that could be the soundtrack to your darker dreams or a Spike Jones movie. They will be performing Music by the Slice Thursday, March 17th at 2:20 PM.

Mazes are a trio from London who, since their 2009 inception, have been blowing up the British airwaves with their 90’s indie pop inspired rock songs. They will be performing at Music by the SliceĀ Saturday, March 19th at 1:35 PM.

Track: Cenetaph
