SXSW Music Review: Soweto Kinch
Soweto Kinch began his headlining showcase on Thursday at Austin’s old school jazz hangout the Elephant Room at a disadvantage. Shorn of his band due to the expense of flying them to Austin, the UK saxophonist/rapper relied on pre-programmed tracks generated by his laptop and cellphone, a stark contrast to the (mostly) acoustic local jazz preceding him.

SXSW Music Review: China Night
The old cliche goes that the fewer Anglos in an ethnic restaurant, the better the food is. By that same logic, the music at China Night on Thursday at 3ten ACL Live sounded delicious.

SXSW Music Review: Roi Perez, Monoloc
If you tried to see Roi Perez in Berlin, where he holds a residency at Panorama Bar, you couldn’t get in. Even regulars at the Berlin “world capital of techno” are turned away nightly. Panorama is infamous for that door “policy,” but SXSWers were ID’d and stamped with a hospitable Southern smile on Thursday night at Barcelona.

SXSW Music Review: Princess Nokia
Destiny Frasqueri is unapologetically angry, fragile, confident. The 25-year-old New York rapper embraces it all and invites everyone to ride the wave with her.
