FPSF Day 2 - 6/2/2013

While Chaos reigned in Austin, another festival was happening over in Houston, with the Free Press Summer Festival which was celebrating its fifth year. Day 2 (6/2) featured TV on the Radio, Baroness, Social Distortion, Cat Power, Gogol Bordello, , Austin's UME and lots more and pictures are in this post.

Among the highlights: Houston Mayor Annise Parker stopped by to introduce gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples; and the excited crowd for Matt & Kim broke down the barricade which was later repaired with steel struts. That'll hold 'em.

Pics from day 1 are here, and more from Sunday are below...

Field Report at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Field Report

One business leader is prioritizing his mental health over a surging career.

Joseph Kennedy, CEO of Pandora, an Internet radio site, announced Thursday that he's stepping down, even as the company posted a 54 percent jump in revenue. It may seem odd for a successful executive to jump ship at the height of his company's success, but in explaining his decision, Kennedy said he had something more important to attend to.

"As I approach the start of my tenth year, my head is telling me it is time to get to a recharging station sooner rather than later," Kennedy said in an earnings call with analysts, according to USA Today.

It may come as no surprise that Kennedy needs a break. He helped Pandora navigate a series of obstacles since becoming a public company in 2011, including lagging advertisement revenue and issues with royalty costs, according to the Wall Street Journal. What's more surprising is that he actually decided to take that break. [Huffington Post]

On a lighter note for Pandora, they'll be in Austin this week for SXSW and have a number of day and night shows from Tuesday (3/12) through Friday (3/15) at Antone's. Artists playing their shows include Talib Kweli, Angel Haze, Eagles of Death Metal, Richard Thompson Electric Trio, The Gaslamp Killer, Dead Prez, Guards, Surfer Blood, Field Report, Akron/Family, Anamanaguchi, Dawes, and more. You can browse their entire lineup and schedule at Pandora.com/SXSW.
