It's official, I have finally experienced SXSW.I can't say I fully experienced SXSW, I was out there for work and I didn't really get a chance to check out other events like The Fader Fort, Thrasher House, Super Party, or Vice Kills Texas. I mean that in the most least-bitter way, I loved my trip to Texas!
My job, Cashmere Agency, took me and a few other coworkers out to Texas for SXSW. We had a two day showcase out in Austin called "#TheVIBEHouseSXSW".
Once settling into Austin, the first restaurant we stopped by was Papadeaux.
I ate a ton! I even ate a good amount of alligator!
One of the events I was able to make was the Doritos party. I went to see my uncle, Snoop, perform and hang with coworkers. It was awesome. I've realized, as much as I work with Dogg, I've only seen him perform about 3 times. Craze. Afterward, we went over to the Interscope party. It was pretty wild, I blame the open bar.
Our showcase was awesome! I handled the stage design, stage layout, and the live visuals for it. I may have gotten a bit out of hand when I decided that I wanted 6 displays and four 7ft tall LED bars. Coming from the electro/EDM scene, I secretly wanted our showcase to be a rave. I feel like I accomplished that. I was super stoked to have performers like Kendrick Lamar/Black Hippy, Dogg, Taylor Gang, Timbaland, A$AP Rocky, and tons of other on the stage I decked out.
Time for Coachella :]
