EDISUN AND FACTORY UNDERGROUND CREW HIT THE ROAD TO AUSTIN TEXAS FOR SXSW: 4000 MILES FOR ONE SHOW, ONE MEETING AND ONE PARTY
In a surprise move, with just a few days notice to their fans, members of Factory Underground Records artist EDISUN decided to make a cross-country drive to Austin Texas to perform at the SXSW 2016 music conference.
According to Ethan Isaac, vocalist for the band: "We decided this so last minute--we had been offered a show that we really wanted to do-- hosted by our agent Ryan Darnell at 3Thirteen Entertainment-- and the only way to go was to drive our band bus, Virginia. 2000 miles, for one show!"
Joining the Factory Underground and Edisun crew on the trip, another unique travel companion by the name of Zyderma HS. An all natural skin care product with anti-microbial qualities, a sample was given to the band by Chloe Valentine of Artists by Chloe, a branding PR specialist from New York City. "We actually took it with us everywhere; we had a lot of fun getting everyone to take pictures with it--Zyderma was Edisun's special VIP guest--we took it to every party at SXSW that we went to." Ethan Isaac said.
"It turns out the brand manager of the company loves hard rock music, and have become really valued supporters of the band. But I have to say all fun aside, the product is something I can stand behind-- all vegan, no chemicals, six ingredients, certified by PETA and the EPA--and it kills nasty little germs on the skin!!! And it's Road Tested!"
The road trip started with a quick trip down to Roanoke Virginia where the band and crew stopped off to visit Black Dog Salvage, home of the Salvage Dogs--Ethan and Joel's favorite television show (DIY Network). Anyone who has seen the Factory Underground knows how much Ethan and Joel are into repurposing salvaged wood--so meeting the cast of Salvage Dogs was clearly a dream come true for the two musicians.
