Time for Christmas music? lol :)
I’ve always loved this song.
some fall jams for the #FAMily @spotify
There’s a chill in the air. That means it’s time to break out the horror movies and one of my favorite playlists: songs that either have been or...
The fifth and final day of Spotify House had our fans dancing in the Austin sunshine right until the last song was played.
Gregory Alan Isakov started the day for us on a chill vibe, playing a toned down set filled with stunning vocals that drew a large crowd to our yard including one passerby who was stopped in his tracks by the music and remarked loudly “Wow!”
The fans didn’t budge once the set was over and the audience urged Isakov to keep playing. It didn’t take much convincing and the band quickly unpacked their instruments to play “The Stable Song”.
The Jane Doze were DJing from our porch throughout the day and played a steady stream of Britney Spears, Ke$ha, and Beyonce in between our live sets.
Wallpaper. brought the party to a peak with songs that seemed to have been written for and about SXSW with lyrics like “Seriously, it’s like the best night ever”. Lead singer Ricky Reed ran around our backyard, high fiving everyone he could get to before jumping back on stage to rock out with the rest of the band in a performance that had us all smiling and wishing that the week would never end.
Sidewalk traffic outside of the house came to a standstill when “America’s Most Talented Kids” winner Tori Kelly began playing in our front yard. Following Isakov’s lead, Kelly treated her fans to an encore following her innovative covers of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking About You”, Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” and Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” which Mashable had just yesterday declared as being better than the original.
Diamond Rings was our final act of SXSW 2013 and he closed out this year from our front porch while wearing our signature green Spotify headphones. Groups of people gathered around and sang along to every song he remixed in his electro-pop style.
We’re closing the doors on an epic week and couldn’t thank all of the bands and fans that stopped by to discover new music with us this week. And a special thanks to all of our friends at Cenote, Cuvee, VitaCoco, Coca-Cola, Pop Chips, Bacardi, Miller, and KIND for keeping our guests fed and hydrated in the Texas heat.
We’ll see ya’ll next year!
