AUSTIN — Dallas' music scene occupied the rooftop of the 6th Street bar, Blind Pig, on a cold and blustery Saturday at South by Southwest 2016. The "Deep Ellum Does Austin" day party was a totally free shindig thrown by Prekindle, Deep Ellum Booking Company and DO214, incorporating craft beer and North Texas musical performers Charley Crockett, Sudie, Color TV, Moon Waves, Pearl Earl and War Party. We sent photographer Thao Nguyen to catch the vibe of the event.
