Soooooo, The C.I.T.Y. turned up Saturday night and turnedout the entire block, with devout C.I.T.Y.folk and newfound fans claiming to have witnessed one of the best shows out here this SXW…YES we came, we performed errrrrr PARTIED and conquered da block and left out like a couple of musical bandits.
Peep this article snippet from a pleased critic:
One band, The C.I.T.Y., who’s from Houston, TX and creating a buzz of their own around the city, shut down the whole block of Congress with their own performance segment in front of Ms. P’s Electric Cock at 1101 South Congress. With their tunes mixed with funk, soul, r&b, hip hop, and even a little rock, The C.I.T.Y. showed Austin they were a force to be reckoned with as a crowd gathered on the block of all ages ranging from little kids to older adults who were all jamming and partying to the tunes. “We don’t just perform, we party,” said RaShard, the lead singer of the band. And they definitely started a block party on the Congress strip.

“Surprise Surprise,” joked the singer before covering a few of Afghan’s tracks. It wasn’t long before Ursher segued into his own material, though. After leaving the stage, the crowd chanted the singer’s name, and like a true showman, the Atlanta native returned saying, “This is some real life Shyte you know. SXSW brings out the best in you. This is raw entertainment here.”
Usher is a HUGE surprise I would’ve loved to see! Although Prince seems like a once in a lifetime show experience from SXSW!

wow! such a travesty!
When the 68-team field was announced Sunday, the Lone Star State was completely shut out. There were no Longhorns, Baylor Bears, Texas A&M Aggies, Red Raiders or Owls.
And not even any Lumberjacks. Southland Conference regular-season champion Stephen F. Austin (27-4) lost its league tournament championship game and didn’t get an at-large NCAA berth, and instead had to settle for a first-round NIT game at Stanford on Tuesday night.
