A Couple Of (2)Dope SXSW Showcases

blame it on Meka March 9, 2011

The dopehouse is gearing up to have a couple shows we will either be presenting, sponsoring and/or appearing at for both this weekend’s Winter Music Conference (me neither) in Miami and Texas’ SXSW Festival. Hit the jump for all the flyers and good stuff.

2DopeBoyz & Last Rights Present The Rising: Bring It Back Tour Edition (Sat. March 12)
Amidst the blitzkrieg of Miami’s Winter Music Conference, the dopehouse will return to the Transit Lounge for the upcoming edition of The Rising. This time around, however, we’ve linked up with the Bring It Back Tour for a truly interactive experience, featuring an emcee, DJ and b-boy/b-girl competition, as well as performances from Freeway and more. If you were in attendance the last time we stopped by, you’ll know it’ll be cracking.

Rappers I Know x Gigacrate Present The Unofficial SXSW Showcase (Thurs. March 17)
Kicking off the whole SXSW thing will be this humdinger of an event where I will be this event’s opening spinner for FWMJ’s unofficial SXSW jumpoff, featuring the likes of Just Blaze, Saigon, Danny Brown, Tanya Morgan and more set to perform. This event should crack off and get your ears (and livers) properly prepped for…

2DopeBoyz, DJBooth & Last Rights Presents The Rising (Friday, March 18)
The big bang. Whereas last year Shake and I were merely media sponsors for the very first Smoker’s Club concert, we’ve taken things into our own hands and linked up with DJBooth and Last Rights to bring Miami’s The Rising to Austin, TX. I’m personally gassed to see Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q take the stage, but Emilio Rojas, Tanya Morgan, Freeway and Big K.R.I.T. are known to rip a stage or two. Stop on by; you may end up walking out with a special (2)Dope shirt Shake and I will be rocking down there…

Move Forward Music & Fusicology’s Unofficial SXSW Showcase (Fri. March 18)
Following The Rising join me, Pac Div, J*DaVeY, Blu and more for another dope showcase spotlighting some of today’s dopest acts. Read: this is your chance to bludgeon Shake with more mixtapes and other such musical paraphernalia.

I also have some shit with The Smoking Section and Nike on Saturday, March 19th (something about a basketball tournament/party & bullshit), but I don’t have the flyer (or the full details for that matter) I’ll let you know about that as I get the information.

Hope to see you all there.
