Afropop's SXSW Showcase, SXSW Itself Cancelled

UPDATE: Welp, the whole thing, including our showcase has been called on account of pandemic. It is a true bummer.

In the meantime, read the confidence with which I was here getting you hyped up:

The second annual Afropop Worldwide South-By-Southwest showcase is happening March 18 at Takoba in Austin, TX. Organizers assure us that the show is going on, so wash your hands and come on by.

We'll be partying from 7:30 past 1 in the morning, from the slick bounce of Ghana's R2BEES to la chicha caliente of Colombia's La Fragua Band.
