In case you weren’t aware, The New Nine is all about women. We’re also founded by Texans, and I’m so proud to be from Texas. Even though we get a bad reputation as gun-toting, bible-thumping, and ultra-conservative. Texans are truly so diverse. That’s why we’re doing our best to elect officials that are pro-women. While we don’t pick parties, we do pick people and unfortunately, the Republican party is getting way too out of hand right now.
I have NEVER been to Float Fest, such a shame. Their lineups have been getting increasingly better every year and despite the heat, I thought I would venture out to see what this fest was all about.
Float Fest is coming up! The festival that combines everything Texans love, floating down rivers and music is finally upon us. This is such a unique festival just because you have the ability to float the river pre-festing.
He’s the babe of the Austin music scene, that’s what every musician told me when I told them I was about to interview Walker Lukens. Walker has created quite the buzz for himself and just from my end on his clever Instagrams and damn catchy music. I’ve had his songs stuck in my head since I saw him perform. We walked to a side street to get away from the hustle at the Modern Outsider showcase at SXSW to talk about the local music scene.
I was so equally excited and nervous for SXSW this year. I think it is hands-down the most important music event of the year. The bands that are performing aren’t your usual festival round-makers, they’re up-and-comers, and there’s just endless possibilities to meet new people in the industry. All opportunities await!
