JNoS PR client DeeSmuve and I decided to travel into Austin, TX this past weekend to experience the popular SXSW atmosphere. From the moment that we arrived downtown near Red River and 6th Street, there was much excitement to see!
We hit the strip wearing our comfortable “Chucks” ready to explore all that we could see during our short day trip to the Texas State Capital. 6th Street has so much to offer from eateries, tourist attractions and bars. The layout reminds me of New Orleans’ Bourbon Street.
We met several other talented musicians and professionals from all over the country. Many artists were raking in dough as they were charmingly posted on the sidewalks playing their music for the passing festival crowd.
We attended a day party at the Belmont with Houston’s 97.9 The Box DJ Hi C in the mix. Performances from Hip-Hop Artists such as Slim Thug, DIce Solo, VH1’s Love and Hip Hop star Mariah Lynn.
Our first peek at SXSW was very insightful and entertaining. We will definitely plan ahead for 2018 to explore more and to have DeeSmuve as one of the festival featured performers!
