Eyrkah Badu's Busy, Busy, Busy SXSW Week.
- ...evade a stalker (as Unfair Park unearths this morning) and get delayed on your travels to SXSW.
- ...have your manager announce to the audience at your free SXSW Auditorium Shores performance--just before it was set to start--that you wouldn't be able to make it down because of "travel issues," as one source at the show told us on Saturday.
- ...have the crowd at said performance scatter and leave when it found out you wouldn't be playing (according to the same source)
- ...somehow, against all odds, make it to Austin in time to perform a couple of songs with your side project The Cannabinoids anyway, much to the delight of those fans who'd remained.
- ...perform a couple of shows in Austin, and none in Malaysia (as we'd wondered). And, not surprisingly, annoy a bunch of Malaysians in the process.
- ...perform alongside Common and Kanye West at Kanye's "secret" Saturday night show at the SXSW Fader Fort, as the above video shows.
