The Shins to stream their SXSW performance tonight

The Shins Port of Morrow

In just a few hours alt-rock staples The Shins will do a set at Google and YouTube’s “Live from the Lot” showcase at South By Southwest. Luckily for those who couldn’t make it to Austin, the whole show will be streaming live online. James Mercer and crew go on at 5:45 Central (7:45 Eastern) and you can watch it over at YouTube Presents. Today’s YouTube lineup also includes Sugar and the Hi Lows, Heartless Bastards, Two Gallants, Jimmy Cliff, and Talib Kweli.

The Shins’ week of SXSW shows marks the beginning of a North American and European tour that is set to last through June. The dates include a trio of shows at New York City’s Terminal 5 on April 29 and 30 and May 1. The whole tour is, of course, in support of the band’s fourth studio album, Port of Morrow, due out Tuesday, March 20, via Mercer’s own Aural Apothecary. Take a look at the full tour schedule below.
