Last night at SXSWi ::: Wallpaper @ Speakeasy
Whitney Van Cleave has been contributing the last couple of days while taking in all of the action in Austin for the interactive portion of SXSW. Ms. Van Cleave checks in with one of the bay area’s liveliest acts going, Wallpaper.
“Last night Wallpaper brought the house down at Speakesy during SAYmedia/TastemakerX party. The Oakland-based beat-tacular pop outfit surprised everyone with barrage of drums, clapping and sharp-tongued rhymes from front man Ricky Reed. Add in the antics of female accompaniment Novena, who has more ferocity and swagger than I thought one woman could, and you have yourselves a unmatched dance explosion of a set that is really beyond words. Their set was without a doubt the best I’ve seen yet this year and I’m bummed that I just missed them in Boulder. Nonetheless, put that shit on your iPod STAT and in the meantime, check out the photos below:”
