When we weren't throwing free day parties and bridge shows at SXSW last week, we were busy throwing nighttime official showcases. On Saturday (3/16), our metal blog Invisible Oranges put on a showcase at North Door and on Friday, we put on a showcase on Maggie Mae's rooftop which was mainly hip hop and electronic with 3421, Mykki Blanco, Man Without Country, Giraffage, The Underachievers, Pictureplane, Brooke Candy, Zebra Katz, and XXYYXX. With so much rock in our day parties, we wanted to mix it up at night and had a ton of fun doing it. Bonus points for the view from venue down onto the 6th Street mayhem,.

3421, who since played NYC shows at Merc and Knit, came all the way from Israel to kick off the Friday night show with a set of their live dubstep. They were the perfect beginning for the crowd who immediately started to fill the 400-capacity room/roof as soon as doors opened, though 3421 work latenight too. That's when we saw them in Tel Aviv over the summer as part of the Jerusalem Music Conference. That time they were the last act of the night and got the drunk crowd moving with help from bombastic MC Miss Red. Miss Red was originally supposed to play with 3421 at SXSW too, but instead she watched this show from the audience (#majorbummer), With her at the show was The Bug who she was playing SXSW with instead (you can catch Miss Red & The Bug in NYC this weekend).

3421 were followed by NYC rapper Mykki Blanco, who was in his usual abrasive mode on stage, which we and the crowd were loving. Then things cooled down a bit for a shoegazey set by Wales' Man Without Country and the chill electronica of Giraffage. (He really caught our ear when he remixed Alice Deejay's "Better Off Alone." Is it cool to like that song in 2013? I hope so.)

Then for the next five acts, the show was on a total high. NYC rap duo The Underachievers were totally on point and started really getting the dancing going, including a bunch of their friends on stage and Pictureplane, who was up next. Like Mykki Blanco, we've seen him at shows and parties in NYC for a while now, and it was great to see him bring his always-fun set to Austin too. He stuck around for more of the show too, and also loved Brooke Candy and Zebra Katz as much as we did. Brooke's outfit was tamer than in her video (she did have a see-through top though), but she paid more attention to her rapper side than her stripper side at the show (not a bad thing). The crowd went completely nuts for her. Frank says:

The Tumblr princess-turned-stripper-turned-rapper turned heads at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase, clad in a white fishnet top and latex peplum skirt. The Los Angeles-based rapper played a short but high-energy set, swinging her crazy long braids (and huge boobs) all over the stage. After going viral via World Star Hiphop and the internet in general, Candy has released video after video for her aggressive, sex-heavy tracks. Joined by best friend and DJ, Jesse St. John, Brooke's crowd of homo-cyber-hipster kids screamed along to every word. Hits "Das Me," "I Wanna Fuck Right Now," and "Everybody Does" dominated her 20-minute set, as she twerked in her platforms, fueling the fire that is her online presence with more and more YouTube-worthy content.
Zebra Katz and flexible collaborator Njena Reddd Foxxx played hit "Ima Read". Silly? Maybe a bit, but like the rest of their set, a total hit live.

The show wrapped up with XXYYXX and for such a young producer (he's 17!), he really knows how to get the party started. The stage filled with people a few songs into his set and everyone was just dancing and going nuts until the club pulled the plug at 2am. Frank says:

Seventeen-year-old XXYYXX headlined the Brooklyn Vegan showcase on the Maggie Mae's rooftop. Despite only recently beginning to tour, the producer was relaxed, barefoot, and very much in his element while onstage playing a combination of his signature chill-out-and-vibe beats, and more hyped up hip-hop remixes including TLC's "No Scrubs" and Waka Flocka's "Fuck This Industry." Following suit with the mellow vibe of the Orlando based producer's music, the security eased up and allowed any crowd member who was feeling it to hop onstage.
The whole show was a blast and we hope everyone who came had as much as we did.

white people all dance like it's a jam rock concert. Look at the girl trying so hard to be sexxxy with a mesh top and no bra, only to gets upstaged by the next act, legit booty right there son, recognize what game like that can do for you, white hipster chicks need to do their buns of steel routines and fill out some!
