The 'Spring Breakers' head to the Lone Star State during spring break! Selena Gomez, Rachel Korine, Ashley Benson and James Franco opted to promote their movie at SXSW Music and Arts Festival in Austin instead of jetting off to some wild and crazy spring break vacay! There’s a rumor swirling around that Riff Raff will be performing. Interesting! I can’t wait to hear the reviews from this one if he does! In any case, I’m looking forward to seeing the movie and possibly bumping into the cast! xo @rozOonThego
Austin’s annual Fun Fun Fun Fest has announced the full lineup for the 2012 festival, to be held November 2-4 at Auditorium Shores.
The 7th annual festival will feature big name acts like the reunion of Run D.M.C., Santigold, an appearance from De La Soul, Girl Talk, and Explosions in the Sky, among many others.
"We book fun fun fun fest, like a festival we’d want to go to and we’d want to see," said Graham Williams, Founder and Producer of the event. "Adding Run-DMC this year, just put it over the top and made that dream come true."
For roughly 75 minutes on Monday night, Jay-Z led a New York takeover of downtown Austin.
The proof came near the end of his special AmEX-Sync concert for SXSW, when Jay-Z asked some 2,700 fans in attendance how many New Yorkers were in the house before launching into “Empire State of Mind,” his juggernaut ode to the city. The response drowned out a similar Texas roll call, showing just how much of the publishing, media and entertainment world had temporarily relocated from NYC to Austin for the fest.
Downsizing from his usual arena-scale shows to the more intimate setting of Austin City Limits Live at Moody Theater, Jay-Z exuded charisma from the moment he opened with “What More Can I Say,” coolly firing off rhymes into a pedestal mic at the center of the X-shaped stage. Later, he trolled its outer edges, ripping through a hit list that was at least partially determined by requests made via Twitter and included “Dirt Off Your Shoulder,” “99 Problems,” “Big Pimpin’” and “Public Service Announcement.”
Through it all, he remained relaxed, calm and confident as ever. It was like the equivalent of watching a preseason exhibition game for a professional athlete; without a ton at stake, this was mostly a chance for Jay-Z to stay in performance shape and have some fun while he’s at it.
JAY-Z will be performing at South by Southwest for the second year in a row.
The MC has teamed up with American Express for the “Amex Sync Show,” which will air live from SXSW at Austin City Limits on March 12 at 7 p.m. CST — the show will be live-streamed on YouTube and will be rebroadcast on-demand from March 13-19.
The concert is part of American Express’ new Twitter experience. Cardmembers will be able to tweet using special hashtags to get exclusive offers when they shop at retailers including Best Buy, McDonald’s, Zappos, and more. During the live stream, fans can tweet song requests and unlock a digital concert poster.
Last year, Jay made a surprise appearance at the showcase for Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label, capping a bill that also included John Legend, Mos Def, Pusha T, Big Sean, Kid Cudi and others.
