Songkick at SxSW
Every year, it’s the same feeling of jealousy when you start seeing the “I’m away at SxSW” out of office emails.. We’re feeling it too here at Songkick HQ as founders Ian and Michelle are over there doing their thang for Songkick. But they’ve kept us in the loop, as we’ve been hosting the Music is Great Britain Facebook page and feeding through their updates direct from Austin.
Here’s a summary and photo diary of what’s been going down throughout the week, with some ‘ones to watch’ artists sandwiched in-between:
Michelle featured on panel ‘Can Social Music Save the Music Industry?‘ You can read a summary of the talk over here at Women 2.0.
One-to-watch: Django Django:
Ian featured on panel ‘ATM in Your Pocket‘ which looked at how the mobile ecosystem is quickly changing and is allowing fans to be active consumers wherever they are.
General SxSW vibezz:
Austin, home of Daniel Johnston, fried chicken and deep-fried pickles, and 6th street: the heart of SXSW!
Spotted, Danny Brown rocking cowboy boots:
One-to-watch: Charli XCX
Ian: “”Finally seeing A$AP Rocky! Dude is wearing a beanie that reads ‘COMME des FUCKDOWN’. Next level swag.”
One-to-watch: Friends, performing at Hype Machine’s Hype Hotel:
Who of this year’s lineup are you most excited about for big things in 2012?
