Shout Out to Goodie Boxers for REAL popolio 2nd Anniversary Dance Party!

This is has been a long time coming, but before COMPLETELY FULLY REALLY shutting down I wanted to make sure to get this post out there. This is the last 1 of 2 posts I will be writing for THE REAL popolio. Promise! ūüôā

I intended to post this closer to the date of the event, but things came up and I never was able to get around to it.

These are all the artists and organizations that donated items (CDs, stickers,¬†gift cards, and other goodies; hence the name)¬†for the goodie boxes for THE REAL popolio’s 2nd Year Anniversary B&W Party featuring 1990s pop music by local¬†DJ, HOT BRITCHES!,¬†that went down on Saturday,¬†September 11, 201o at local mediterranean restaurant, Phara’s. ¬†

I made 2 versions of the flyer.  See them here and here at my personal Facebook Page. 

So a boisterous SHOUT OUT and gigantic THANK YOU to (in no particular order):

San Antonio indie band, LEDASWAN; NYC-based collaborative alternative¬†musicians collective, PASSION PROJECT; long-time¬†industry guy,¬†RICH OVERTON¬†and his RJO ARTIST RELATIONS & MANAGEMENT (sent us stuff from multiple artists he reps); Boston pop/R&B girl group, JADA, ATX’s own rockers; THE MIDGETMEN; Dallas musician of many hats, CLAY PENDERGRASS;¬†LA-based singer-songwriter, BILL CURD; also¬†LA-based dance rock diva, DEBBY HOLIDAY; ATX electro hip hoppers, ONE STEP PROGRAM; NYC indie¬†pop/rock¬†outfit, LOVE & LOGIC;¬†Chicago pop rocker,¬†SCOTT WESLEY; NYC-based folk rocker, JON SANDLER; ATX old school soulstress, LISA MARSHALL; ATX power popster, PHIL DUTRA; and local Chinese food restaurant at Dobie Mall, HOA HOA (for donating gift cards).¬†

OUTlander TV – Interview with God-Des & She

During Austin PRIDE on Saturday, September 10, 2011, I interviewed some of the featured artists of the inaugural OUTlander Fall Festival.  In addition to this post, I created my own YouTube Page to feature them. 

Here’s the fourth of the series with ATX hip hop soul duo, God-Des & She, who were the Austin PRIDE 2011 HEADLINER at the OUTlander Fall Festival.  Unlike the other interviews in this series,  I spoke to God-Des & She BEFORE their house-bringing-down festival closing set on the Empire Stage at Lipstick 24.

Thanks to Melissa Martin, Director of Operations for bMUSEd Entertainment,¬†for the opportunity &¬†God-Des &¬†She¬†for being regular peeps, so funny they¬†had me rollin’, and for being so generous with their time as I know¬†they are busy, busy ladies. ;)¬†

What you see is not actually the entire interview, I spoke to them right up until they had to go on stage (unbeknownst to me), so we were suddenly surprised so they could hurry up and go tear the roof off.  It was all pretty exciting.

As stated in the interview, God-Des & She will be honored with their own official day in Austin, as proclaimed by Austin City Mayor, Lee Leffingwell, on Thursday, November 3, 2011.  Festivities and a performance are scheduled to take place at City Hall.  Go to the Facebook Event Page for details.
