One artist that we made sure to have circled on our itinerary last week in Austin was none other than B.o.B. He was on tap to perform multiple times throughout the week, capping Thursday night at The Warner Sound Showcase with T.I., at the V.I.P. Hard Rock Lounge on Friday, and headlining Perez Hilton's annual One Night In Austin SXSW Showcase on Saturday night. Sure enough, #TeamGowhere was able to make it out to all three events and above, we have some dope performance footage mixed in with our sit-down from Saturday night with Jen DeLeon.
We sat down backstage with B.o.B in his dressing room before he took the stage at Perez Hilton's One Night In and naturally, Jen kicked it off with a question on what's one thing we don't know about the blogging/entrepreneur extraordinaire. Also find out what he and T.I. are working on, the deepest subject he wrote about for his upcoming album Strange Clouds (hint: the song was just released a couple days ago below), and more depth from him about overcoming his trials and tribulations. Finally, stay tuned through the end for how B.o.B is going to remember us from now on... hah!
Shouts to B.o.B's manager T.J. for accommodating us as well as Cam & Josh for the continued fresh filming and editing on our SXSW coverage. And hey, even I got in on the fun and filmed Saturday's activities, which included B.o.B's performance at Perez from on the stage! As you can tell, we were all that close to the action as it was simply amazing to be able to film the energetic B.o.B from those vantage points as he partied with the crowd and even cartwheeled on stage. For more fun, hit our previous documentary-style piece with B.o.B from last time in Chicago this past November and our photo opps below. Strange Clouds. May 1st.
