Austin’s big-and-getting-bigger-by-the-year, week-long (give or take) music festival South By Southwest came to a close yesterday—seems there were more hip-hop acts this year than any previous and one of the most ingenious of these came straight out of our neighborhood—at least this article in the Star Telegram places their recording studio a stone’s throw away from White Rock Lake. They call themselves PPT for their names: Picasso, Picnic and Tahiti. If you didn’t make it to Austin last week, check them out March 27 at the Cavern Club, 1914 Lower Greenville for just $6.
