Not only was it my first year performing an official showcase (Yay!  Ben Deily of the Lemonheads came with John Strohm of the Blake Babies who has a wonderful blog post you need to check out here), but our panel was also selected entitled From the Stage: An Artist’s Perspective.  Many thanks to our wonderful panelists Kate Bradley (Outlandos/Blurt), Rob Giles (The Rescues), Michael Petricone (CEA) and Anais Mitchell (Righteous Babe).  It was a blast!  You can check out the podcast on SXSW.com

The Highway Girl SXSW Panel

Somehow we also managed to throw a little shindig of our own!  We invited some incredible singer songwriters to stop by and play.  Greg Holden, Rosi Golan, Rob Giles and Paul Chesne all blew us away with their live sets.

Many thanks to them as well as our sponsors Oxfam, Insiders Network, Bandvino and Roku.  We gave away a Roku player as well as a couple of wine spikes from Bandvino.  Congrats to our winners!!

The Highway Girl also needs to thank PGI for allowing us to film in the penthouse of the Frost Bank Building in beautiful Downtown Austin.  New episodes of The Highway Girl coming soon on our brand new site.  SO excited!!

Do Geeks Rock? Yes!Every once in awhile a cool event comes along and we wanna be involved! That’s why for the second year we’re proud to be media sponsors of Silicon Valley Rocks. Benefiting Music in Schools Today (MuST), SV Rocks is 7 bands comprised of at least one exec from the tech community.

Tech professionals by day, rockers by night – on December 9 at the Great American Music Hall, they’ll pick up their instruments and venture onto the big stage to let their alter egos shine… for a good cause and the love of music.

Silicon Valley Rocks 2009 will bring together the Valley’s tech community – from VCs and entrepreneurs to bloggers and software developers – to raise money for Music in Schools Today (MuST), a Bay Area non-profit that seeks to rescue music programs from budget cuts.

The second annual showcase will once again feature Silicon Valley bands and original rockers who will entertain and amuse your entire social graph.  Friends of the Highway Girl can save $5 off tickets at all pricing levels by clicking here.
