Okayplayer's networkwide SXSW 2014 takeover features Okayafrica favorites Petite Noir, Young Fathers, and Christian Tiger School.


South By Southwest is just around the corner (1 week!). And earlier today our partners in blog let loose news of Okayplayer's networkwide SXSW takeover. Beginning next Wednesday, March 12th, OKP hits Austin with a series of four family-wide (OKP, OKA, Okayfuture, & Large Up) parties. We're proud to note that Saturday's event comes especially stacked with Okayafrica featured artists! Joining the likes of Erykah Badu, Thundercat, and Cody Chesnutt at the Okayplayer Official SXSW Showcase are three of our favorites: Scottish / Liberian / Nigerian art-rap trio Young Fathers (who topped our 'Best of 2014' lists with "I Heard" and "Low,"), South Africa's father of noir wave Petite Noir, and Cape Town's psychedelic beatmaking duo Christian Tiger School. The CTS dudes are also set to take the decks Friday night at Okayplayer & Soulection's Official SXSW Showcase along with Sango, Quantic, and more. Scroll on for details on the Saturday (3/15) event and catch up on Africa In Your Earbuds mixes from Petite Noir, Young Fathers, and Christian Tiger School. Stay tuned for our full guide to SXSW 2014...
