We finally have the full lineup for the 2011 Village Voice Media/Frank 151 SXSW party, and it's a doozy. Heading up the bill are Staten Island Shao-Lin spitters the Wu Tang clan, still coasting on their late 2010 reunion that packed Numbers, and L.A. funk-rock beasts Fishbone.
Houston's own Trae tha Truth will perform in support, as will rising Alabama rapper Yelawolf, Brooklyn indie-rap duo Rocky Business, "drunk crunk" purveyor Trouble Andrew, L.A. MC Lyte goddaughter Marz Lovejoy, and a bumpin' DJ set from Dallas diva Erykah Badu.
A little earlier in the day, we've also got some fierce female-fronted indie-rock with Wild Flag - the brand-new supergroup featuring former members of Sleater-Kinney, Helium, Quasi, and Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks - and ex-Houstonians Ume.

The party is scheduled for 5 p.m. until last call Thursday, March 17, at the Austin Music Hall. Unlike in years past, it's not free to the public (SXSW badge and wristband-holders excepted) but it's a big ol' room and tickets will be available on the cheap.
