SXSW 2014 Artist: Jidenna

Okayplayer, the original progressive urban music website, are bringing SXSW Music Festival attendees a night of soul and hip-hop to remember. The Okayplayer showcase is happening the evening Saturday, March 15 at Bungalow (92 Rainey St), closing out the final night of music with a bang!

Highlights of the performance include Cody Chesnutt, who found mainstream success when the guitarist collaborated with The Roots on the song “The Seed 2.0” in the early 2000s. The guitar player brings a blend of styles including classic rock, R&B, pop, punk and gospel.

Erykah Badu will take the stage alongside bass player Thundercat as DJ Low Down Loretta Brown. The R&B singer-songwriter has seen a ton of well-deserved success in her career, having put out three certified Platinum albums and one Gold.
