Dawes, John McCauley, Delta Spirit
Delta Spirit is a band that is known for its live performances. Originally from Southern California, Delta Spirit now calls Brooklyn home. Their driving rhythm and congregational songwriting, however, are home on any stage. The band recently performed on Conan O'Brien's show on TBS.
Rounding out the full lineup is a roster of bands that would headline most other parties: Kopecky Family Band, Joe Fletcher And The Wrong Reasons, Quiet Life and Dan Blakeslee.
Kopecky Family Band isn't connected by blood but by their love of music and putting on a great show. The sextet out of Nashville has a strong, cult-like following throughout the country.
Fletcher is a Providence, Rhode Island-based singer/songwriter who recently performed at the legendary Newport Folk Festival. His second album, White Lighter, has been universally praised by critics.
Portland, Oregon-based Quiet Life is no stranger to followers of Dyn, having toured with Dyn in 2012 entertaining audiences at Velocity conferences in the USA and Europe, The Dublin Web Summit and two other European shows.
Like Dyn, Dan Blakeslee is based in New England. His homemade recording, Live at Laconia State Prison, has been compared to Johnny Cash.
In addition to Music Meets Tech, Dyn is powering all DNS (web performance, uptime) and Transactional Email Delivery for SXSW 2013.
"SXSW brings together some of the most influential people in tech and music," said York. "That is exactly what Dyn does with our Music Meets Tech parties. This was a natural partnership."
Incorporated in 2001, Dyn is the worldwide Internet Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) leader, powering Managed DNS, Traffic Management, Email Delivery & Email Reporting for more than four million enterprise, small business and personal users. With nearly 20 data centers around the world and industry-leading uptime for over 10 years, Dyn's commitment to customer relationships and engineering excellence shines every day. Uptime is the Bottom Line.
