Less than two days after her deeply divisive
debut SNL performance
, word comes that Lana Del Rey is heading into the belly of the beast: she’s been added to the SXSW 2012 lineup, which means the dusky Born To Die
singer will perform for many of the tastemakers, music bloggers, advertisers and industry folk who have slammed her privately and publicly. We expect the “Gangsta Nancy Sinatra”
will have more appearances under her belt by the time the Texas festival kicks off in March, but will it make a difference? See the other new additions to the lineup below.
In addition to Lana Del Rey, SXSW has added:
Little Boots (of Shake Until Your Heart Breaks fame)
Miike Snow (who’ll play “Devil’s Work” for sure, and maybe “Toxic” if you ask nicely)
The Ting Tings (who’ll show off Sounds From Nowheresville)
