SXSW bound

Sxsw2009mu

Last week, I got my official invitation to be on a panel at this year's South by Southwest Music conference.  I'm excited because this will be my first time at the festival.  The panel is being organized by my friend and music journalist par excellence Kandia Crazy Horse.  Originally, it was supposed to take place on Saturday, March 21, but now it's been moved to Thursday, March 19.

The working title of the session? White Music for Black People.  Nice nod to Apollo Heights, if you ask me.

More details to come, but if you're going to be down there, let's hook up!

    Hi Rob.
    I’ll be showcasing my music at SXSW. Got one performance set and waiting for the other official time.
    I’m a swedish up-n-coming singer/songwriter who performed at the big Lollaplooza festvial in Chicago last year.
    Feel free to drop me a line. I’ll keep in touch if you want to come by and watch the showcase.
