AFROPUNK

... the other Black experience


For the 5th year in a row, Afro-Punk caused a commotion at the SXSW Festival, with two shows that showcased the creativity and talent present in the Afro-Punk Community. Acts such as Big Boi (of Outkast), The Dallas Austin Experience, The London Souls, Janelle Monae, Whole Wheat Bread, IrRadio, K'Naan, The Smyrk, Peekaboo Theory, The J.U.S. Evolution, American Fangs gave memorable performances. Were any of you there? We'd love to hear from you!
In the meanwhile, here are some pictures and videos from the shows.

The first show was on March 19th 2009 at the Austin Music Hall
and got the audience mesmerized by the high-energy performances.

Big up to Quincy Jones for paying us a visit backstage!
