Welcome to Austin and welcome to MVMT50 at SXSW Interactive!
As the kick off event – the evening offers the perfect networking opportunity to renew connections and sync up itineraries for the weekend. We will have a complimentary bar and serving up a Texas inspired hors d’ oeuvres menu.
The evening will also feature the presentation of the Top Ten Innovator Awards recognizing the top ten African Americans who made the biggest impact in 2013. And you can’t experience the Live Music Capital Music of the World™ without live music – right? We’ll have a sizzling live soul auditory experience for your pleasure. When was the last time you witnessed an orchestral ensemble of up to 20 pieces at a Hip-Hop concert? Well, that is but a fraction of what you will get when you catch Thee Phantom and The Ill Harmonic Orchestra in action – picture B-Boy meets Beethoven! The evening also features Jackie Venson, an multi-instrumentalist with an out of this world voice; and DJ Phife spinning the best in eclectic neo-sounds.
