For those us far away from the indie music pilgrimage in Austin, Texas, known as South By Southwest, there's good news: In addition to members of the Crossfade team being there, our parent company, Village Voice Media, is all over it.
In fact, VVM threw a little shindig last night at the Austin Music Hall (sounds fancy!) along with Frank151. The event featured performances by Wu-Tang Clan, Yelawolf, WIld Flag, Trae the Truth, Times New Viking, and more. Even Erykah Badu made an appearance, which according to our sister paper, Houston Press, was billed as a DJ set, even though she tagged along with the Wu-Tang Clan to perform a few songs.
But before you do that, check out a few more photos from the party after the jump.
