Our HBO Presents Treme: A Special SXSW Day Event this past March was a huge success, bringing the distinct New Orleans flavor to Austin. For those of you who missed it, here is a little clip with highlights from the party.
On Thursday, March 17th, HBO presents Treme – A Special SXSW Day Event produced by Giant Step. The festivities kick off at 12:00 Noon in true New Orleans style with a Second Line led by Dancingman504 and heralded by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band as it winds through 6th street in downtown Austin, TX. At 1pm the Second Line will return to its starting point at The Ghost Room for the rest of the party. Featuring live performances by legendary pianist Henry Butler, followed by the Grammy nominated Pine Leaf Boys, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, and Dirty Dozen Brass Band, with DJ Paul Craven spinning throughout the afternoon. Delicious cajun food from Austin’s own Evangeline Café will be served, so make sure you come ready to throw down LA style.
