Aside from the big artists at SXSW, the festival was primarily created to support the local musicians as well as the up and coming artists. Hiatus Kaiyote  is a neo-soul group from Melbourne, Australia who made their first debut at SXSW. The group performed at Parish Hall venue on 6th street, an intimate setting at the end […]

Waking up on Friday and hearing rain was instantly a downer for me. The week had been so beautiful and I never check the weather so I was taken by surprise. I hate being in the rain! My schedule since arriving has been all business so I didn’t have a chance to do what I […]

As if one set wasn’t enough, Doomtree performed twice on Thursday night at Karma Lounge. The official SXSW showcase was packed both times that Doomtree took the stage. The collective hip hop group took Karma and turned it into a straight party. Doomtree is comprised of seven members, and each had a hand in giving […]

The mtvU Woodie music festival and awards show highlights the year’s top fresh artists who made it big on the charts as well as the iconic musicians who have stayed on top. The day started off as a festival with a number of performances from Robert DeLong and Ty Dolla $ign as the openers. Although the […]

When I found out that Dustin Kensrue, front man of post hard-core band Thrice, would be doing solo sets at this year’s SXSW I lost my mind. I was bartending on a slow Monday and had one bar regular sitting at the bar. I was looking up all of the performing artists and when I […]

The biggest show, attendance wise, that SXSW has had to offer was Spoon this past Thursday at Auditorium Shores. The show was free for wristband and badge holders and they were handing out guest passes for the general public. The park was filled; there were pets and kids in the mix, so it was the […]

I was relieved when I saw there was not the line I had expected for Brooklyn rockers TV on the Radio. I was thrilled that I was able to sneak next to the side rails and get very close to the stage. I was beyond ecstatic when I saw that Stubb’s was still serving delicious […]

I met with the four man indie-pop band from California yesterday in an alley behind Buffalo Billiards off 6th and Brazos. We escaped to the alley since inside 101.5, Austin’s indie and alternative station, had artists in and out for live interviews. Needless to say, the place was packed and very loud. We were not […]

The rumors of free drinks and food are true and alive at SXSW. Copyright Alliance hosted a charity event last night at El Sol Y La Luna called Keep America Creative. All you had to do was RSVP, which I did at the door, and I was in for a free show, unlimited beer and margaritas.

Wednesday night for SXSW had much more going on than the previous night, and the crowds were forming early at almost every door.  The Roosevelt Room, which is on the smaller scale for venue size, was no exception. The show was started off by Kydd Jones who immediately got the crowd going with dope lyrics […]

As SXSW music week continues along, bigger and bigger names are popping up around town. While most of the official showcases do not start until around 8:00 pm, many of the bars and shops around town are throwing their own events to keep everyone entertained. Waterloo Records, located on North Lamar, has day parties Wednesday […]

Uncle Lucius took full advantage of the packed house at Parish on 6th St. on the first night of the music portion of South By Southwest. This dimly lit venue turned into quite the party when Uncle Lucius took the stage as they had the crowd singing along with every word.

It is said that one of the most exclusive shows at SXSW is Fader Fort. The 4-day music line up consists of artists such as Migos, Bleachers, Ghostface Killah, Chance The Rapper and many more. Fader Fort was serious when they said their lineup was going to be dope.

I finally made it to Austin late last night and headed over to Cheer Up Charlies, a great venue that had two stages set up and the added perk of two food trucks on site. Unfortunately, I entered as The Sour Notes were ending their set, but I plan to catch them Thursday during a […]

When it comes to South By Southwest, there is nothing short of amazing. The week long music frenzy is just getting started. Along the high baller music showcases, there is this one event that is a must when you attend SXSW. The mtvU Woodies is an amazing awards show highlighting the year’s top artists and spotlighting the newest […]

South By Southwest is almost here and with it comes the 2015 Fader Fort. This year the Fader Fort will be presented by Converse just as in years past and will run from March 18th-21st. Past musical acts like Black Hippy, Santigold and Trinidad Jame$ have torn up the stage and this years lineup is sure […]
