Hip Hop @ SXSW

South by Southwest is mostly commonly known and written as SXSW. I've never attended, but I am seriously considering it in the near future. Let me tell you why.

If you like music, cool. You will like this. Especially if you like live performances because there are lots of music showcases. If you like movies, cool. They have a section of the conference dedicated to films. Check. And if you are a techie or a gamer, there is an interactive component as well. Now all you have to do is get time off from the j-o-b to enjoy the madness. If you haven't made plans by now, then you aren't going this year. But as we say about the Cleveland Browns, there's always next year ... love my Browns.

Anyway, SXSW is an annual event that takes place in Austin. This year it began on March 13. It will wrap up on Sunday, March 22, 2009.

Nice to know that hip hop is filtered through the SXSW festivities. Especially with this year's Audible Treats SXSW Round Up. There's a pretty good line up of performances from Thursday through Sunday featuring a variety of hip hop artists:
  • J*DaVey
  • Keelay & Zaire
  • Jern Eye
  • Fortilive
  • Truthlive
  • Tanya Morgan
I hope to get around to reviewing the Keelay & Zaire as well as the Tanya Morgan. I hope to do that sooner rather than later.

Meanwhile, if you can't take part in the event hip hoppers, pop open your music player and get down wit the get down ... kfox
