Last week, the Headliner team attended the annual SXSW music convention in Austin. We had a booth at the convention center where we met many musicians, managers and marketing people. The response at our booth was very positive, and people seemed excited about the potential to promote that Headliner offers. I also had the opportunity to meet some of the artists who currently use Headliner including David Martinez and Mega Rex.
At night, we checked out some of the bands performing including The Antlers, Les Savy Fav, Surfer Blood, Dam Funk and Small Black. I had heard good things about Small Black before and had liked some of their recordings, but Saturday was my first time seeing them. Overall, I was pretty impressed. I also got to see JEFF the Brotherhood play a set. JEFF is a garage punk duo of real-life brothers from Nashville who give great, energetic, live performances. Check out their sitehere.
Overall SXSW was a great experience and I thought Austin was a sweet city. More to come tomorrow.
