Invasion of the GoGirls During #SXSW 2014

During the South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) in Austin, TX 2014, I had an opportunity to perform for the 14th annual “Invasion of the GoGirls” Showcase. Woot—it was a blast! It was my first performance at home in Austin, TX, since moving back to Austin from Los Angeles in 2012. It was the second time I had performed with #GoGirlsMusic during SXSW, as I made my GoGirls Invasion debut at Trophy’s on South Congress for “Invasion of the GoGirls” showcase during #SXSW in 2011.

And a super-super-huge thank you to Arthur Edstrom for not only being the best “keyboard tech and roadie,” but for putting up with my crazy-self the past two weeks! You’re total-awesome! And a super-huge thank you to Dot Todman for getting my vocals and my spirit back into working order after a hiatus…let’s keep it going!

And a super-huge thank you to Steve Byrd for supporting indie artists…you have a big heart, Steve! Thank you. And to Gilli Moon for keeping me on track and Michael Dolan for providing wisdom.

And a super-huge thank you to my shoes (see picture) for a no face-plant night! I love shoes. But, hmm…I think it’s time to start going barefoot. Seriously.

Speaking of time, it’s now #backwithdesire to more songwriting, with a smile. It had been awhile since I last performed live (where does the time go? Really?!). I’m super-happy to have made it through yesterday in one piece and good fun! Phew.

How did I prep to perform?  Kathleen Blackwell – Promo & Update – GoGirls Invasion – #SXSW [Unofficial & Rocking]:
