One of central Illinois’ finest exports, Hum, have revealed plans to perform at this year’s South By Southwest Interactive festival as part of a showcase presented by Champaign, Illinois, music and arts festival the Pygmalion Festival. The show will take place on Saturday, March 14, at Licha’s Cantina, located at 1306 E. 6th Street, Austin, TX 78702. The event is free but you must RSVP to attend.

Hum might not be a name instantly recognizable to some of you, but many current bands such as Circa Survive, Title Fight, Balance And Composure and the Felix Culpa take direct influence from their atmospheric space-rock sound. Here’s a sampling of how awesome Hum were (and still are):
