SXSW Closing Weekend: The GZA, Bone Thugs & Major Lazer

21 Mar, 2010 SXSW 2010

There’s just way to much music to cover at SXSW. You go there with the hopes of getting turned on by some new tunes, all while enjoying the few big acts and ‘secret shows’ they put on. Here’s a quick look at some Froworthy performances from the last couple days . . .

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
: Bone Thugs? Yes Bone Thugs. With the first of da month around the corner, these guys no doubt need to make some money. What better way to do this than to throw a surprise show and sell some tee-shirts. I still have this single on CD.

Major Lazer: A packed out Cedar Street Courtyard saw quite the midnight performance. You know Major Lazer . . . the Jamaican commando who fights vampires and monsters. One look at this video will make you understand why I wore a condom into the show, and received a tetanus shot immediately after.

GZA with The Black Lips (pic above): It’s been 15 years since Liquid Swords came out and I wore oversized Tommy Hilfiger sweaters. And though the GZA’s flow is not what it once used to be, it’s hard to complain about this performance of Shimmy Shimmy Ya (R.I.P.).
