On the Scene: SXSW Day Three

Day Three was a little low-key for myself as the rest of the crew went to work on their individual projects and I got to sleep in a little later than usual. We all met up later in the evening and went to my favorite showcase of SXSW. Solange Knowles along with Puma put on the Saint Heron showcase featuring artists from the Saint Heron compilation that dropped in the Fall of 2013. Solange is a hometown homegirl (and elementary school pal, go Will Rogers Elem!) and I definitely wanted to support her and her artists. I loved this compilation and what she is currently doing with her label Saint Records so I headed over to Cheer Up Charlie’s off Red River. I really was taken to another time and place with these artists. This was the first showcase I really didn’t speak a word but listened to all of the music presented. Iman Omari, KelelaMoses Sumney (him and that guitar!! *swoons*) and more performed along with special guest Tweet. I spotted Luke James, Chef Roble’ Ali and Ingrid Burley (ibtunes) grooving in the crowd.

We capped off the night again at the Illmore partying until the wee hours of the morning. Bun B, The A$AP Mob, Skrillex (one of my new favorite DJ’s), Ty Dolla $ign, and Wiz Khalifa came through and performed hit after hit. Y’all know I’m partial to Bun B because he is also the hometown homie and I grew up listening to him and Pimp C (UGK) in my early days. Wiz Khalifa was on the stage so long, the venue turned on the lights! Wiz kept performing and the crowd was still hype! Check out all the event pics from day three!
