With the support of the Scottish Arts Council, a record number of Scottish bands performed in Austin, Texas at the South-by-Southwest (SxSW) music and film festival in 2004.

The ‘Scottish Invasion’ as it was affectionately known, was an opportunity for a number of the bands including the Trashcans to showcase their talents. Others acts who performed included Biffy Clyro, Idlewild and Hobotalk.

Between March 17-21 the Trashcans made a number of appearances and interviews in support of the upcoming ‘Weightlifting’ album, with their official SxSW showcase gig, taking place at midnight at the Fox and Hound on Friday March 19.

Here’s a promo CD from this time. All tracks are studio recordings.
