Alongside previously announced rock band Electirc Eel Shock and the artists announced for the Japan Nite tour, several other Japanese artists have been revealed as guests during the music leg of SXSW, which is set to take place in in Austin, TX, later this month.

Performance art project Maywa Denki, the brainchild of Nobumichi Tosa will be in attendance, offering a Q&A session and a "live demonstration". Along with performances involving intriguing electronic gadgets and instruments created by Tosa, the project also includes books, art, stationery and toys.

Also making an appearance at SXSW is all-female pop/punk band Toquiwa (previously known as Pinky Piglets). The band has a powerful sound with a cute edge and has already performed in the UK, Canada and Singapore. Following their performance at SXSW they will embark on an extensive North American tour with British band The Wedding Present.

Guitar-led instrumental band Lagitagida will also be performing at the festival. This young band has yet to release a full-length album, though their two EPs CaterpiRhythm and CartaMarina, which are available on iTunes, have been well received.

Lastly, Peelander Z, a group known for wearing brightly-coloured super-hero costumes, will also be in attendance. The band is now based in NYC, and recently released the album Space Station. Peelander Z will play a number of shows during SXSW and will be touring America this month with Electirc Eel Shock.
