Posted on by

Ustream.TV is proud to announce yet another amazing series of shows @ SXSW:

The legendary VIPER ROOM and BEBO take over Austin, bringing a 4 day extravaganza of bands, March 12 – 16, 7 PM – 1 PM PDT / 10 PM – 1 AM EDT. Check out the lineup below.

And yes, I realize the first show is already over. And yes, it was damn successful. Please excuse us: the Ustream.TV crew is working hard to confirm these things literally on the streets of SXSW. I’m literally writing this blog at the AllHipHop show right down the street on 6th!

Literally, as I’m writing this, legendary rapper Bushwick Bill of Geto Boys made a surprise appearance at the the AllHipHop/Bebo show.

Anyway, here’s that lineup, with the Wednesday lineup included for the sake of the recorded video you’re going to watch right now!

The music festival portion of SXSW kicks off today. That means that Austin will see a mass exodus of Silicon Valley folks, replaced by a mass influx of Hollywood folks. Lucky for you, the mighty Ustream.TV crew will be staying put, bringing some of the best that SXSW has to offer.

In association with AllHipHop.com, Ustream.TV announces the live broadcast series of nightly jam-packed hip-hop shows, kicking things off tonight, March 12, with a LIVE performance by the legendary Bun B of UGK. Amongst a army of up-and-coming performers, the notable and/or legendary artists in the lineup include M-1 of Dead Prez on Thursday, Chingo Bling and Mr. Capone-E on Friday, and Mr. Pookie & Mr. Lucci on Saturday

We’re currently confirming connectivity at a bunch of venues soon! More updates and big names to come!
