Mid March in Texas means two things: 1) Spring Break at South Padre Island and 2) South by Southwest. This year the festival which highlights “original music, independent films, and emerging technologies” got interesting buzz from appearances from the First Couple, Barack and Michelle Obama.

Here is some of what I was up to in Austin during “South By”. Soulful song-slayer Reggie Jamz performed at the Radisson downtown right off if the river, on Friday.

His performance was a part of My Hotel Room. MHR is an innovative event series that provides a live SXSW music experience to people who may not be able to make it to Austin. Look out for new music from Reggie Jamz and catch him performing all over Houston.

Eclectic R&B artist Zachary-Dèvon attended a panel event hosted by Monster Audio Products that highlighted their new boom-box, which brings back original hip-hop vibes.

He also performed at the event with his background singers, and later performed as part of the My Hotel Room line-up for Saturday. I ended up at Austin Music Hall, were Erykah Badu would DJ late into the night.
