Song Crush of the Week: “But a few leagues off the shore, i bit a flashing lure, and I assure it was not what I expected it to be.”
Last night we rocked Austin with Spotify Live, our second annual SXSW marquee event.
The crowds turned out in record numbers both at the warehouse and online to our live-stream on Billboard.com.
DJ Hesta Prynn got the dance party started, mixing favorites ranging from Biggie to Icona Pop which had the crowd screaming along “I don’t care, I love it!” which seemed to be the theme of the night.
The Obscura visuals continued throughout the night, forming the perfect backdrop for our headliner, Kendrick Lamar who took to the stage amid a roar of applause.
Kendrick invited friends and fans alike to join him on stage for much of his hour-long set which included a cover of Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness”, as well as his own top hits like “Swimming Pools” and “Poetic Justice”.
Swedish EDM duo CAZZETTE spun the last tracks of the night and kept the crowd pumped and getting down until the very end.
If you missed the event, make sure you come by Spotify House today and tomorrow for the final acts of the week before we close the doors on SXSW 2013!
