Harmontown Returns to SXSW with Yahoo and Community

Burbank, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2015

Dan Harmons popular podcast will perform again this year at SXSW, after being invited back as part of the comedy festival line-up during SXSW Film. Starburns Industries and Yahoo are bringing the live show to SXSW in support of Yahoo Screens exclusive presentation of Season 6 of Community, Saturday, March 14th at Brazos Hall in Austin.

The Harmontown podcast will kick off at 7pm, followed by a Community cast red carpet and a sneak peak of the first episode of Communitys 6th season, presented at 9:30pm. The evening will culminate in a Greendale School Dance party at the same venue, beginning at 10pm. All events will celebrate the release of Community on Yahoo Screen (http://www.yahoo.com/screen), March 17th and promote the shows eagerly awaited return.

Harmontown performed at SXSW last year during the premiere of the Harmontown documentary, which was co-produced by Starburns Industries. The film premiered as part of the documentary spotlight portion of SXSW Film, and Harmenians from across the country came out to see the movie and Dan and co perform live. Bringing the show that inspired the movie was a great complement to the film then, and joining Harmontown and Community fans together this year at SXSW is another natural fit.
