From Babygrande Records:

Babygrande @ SXSW w/ Wu-Tang Clan, Erykah Badu, Fishbone

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 11, 2011
 
BABYGRANDE @ SXSW WITH WU-TANG CLAN, ERYKAH BADU, FISHBONE, ROCKY BUSINESS & MORE
 
Babygrande Records, in honor of its 10-year anniversary, is excited to announce its partnership with Village Voice Media and Frank151 to sponsor “Showdown” at SXSW 2011 on Thursday March 17th at Austin City Music Hall.
 
“Showdown” features a hand picked selection of legendary acts and rising stars to create the biggest night of hip-hop in Austin.  Featuring Wu-Tang Clan, Erykah Badu, Fishbone, Yelawolf, Trae Tha Truth, Rocky Business & many more, this is a night that will live on long after the curtains close.
 
Babygrande/FrankRadio artist Rocky Business emerged from New York’s Lower East Side music scene by continually pushing the limits of creativity with their genre-defying blend of hip-hop, indie rock, punk, and electronica.  On the verge of releasing their debut EP, A Rebel’s Roar, the band, headed by frontman/emcee Strictly Business and producer/guitarist Johnny On The Rocks, has earned a reputation for their live shows, consistently giving “an epic performance, during which drums are chucked, people are lifted, and everyone appears pleasantly moist.” - L Magazine
 
Laced with heartfelt rhymes and an infectious melody, the group’s lead single, “Rocky’s Theme” is a pleasing blend of musicianship and pop sensibility.  Seamlessly combining harmony and complexity, “Rocky’s Theme” is an emphatic anthem and a reminder that things never stay the same.
