Reason to Rhyme Music International Music Showcase

March 21, 2020 at 12:00 pm - March 22, 2020 at 12:00 am



It is with deep regret that we announce our international music showcase has been POSTPONED until further notice due to the Corona Virus.  We all worked tirelessly to put on an incredible live showcase and experience for all.

The most important thing for us is that everyone is safe and with family as this crisis continues to surround us.

We will be sure to let you know the rescheduled date.



Reason to Rhyme Music is proud to present an unofficial International Music Showcase during the South by South West convention in Austin, Texas featuring some of the most talented musicians from around the world:

El Tule | Lue Lafé | Eastside Blues Syndicate with Matthew Robinson | Sarah Jane Hargis | Deann Rene Band | Trío Caliente | Skye Downing | Jim Trainer | DJ Nuño

This will be one of the most incredible experiences displaying some of the most virtuous, global musical talent worthy of attendance.


We recently learned last Friday that SXSW officially cancelled their incredible convention in Austin, Texas that brings people together from all walks of life who celebrate art, music, film, creativity and culture.

We understand that small business owners, the service industry, artists and the local Austin community have been affected by South by Southwest’s difficult and responsible decision to cancel their event due to the widespread impact the Corona Virus (COVID-19) is perceived to be.

We believe that family, friends and those close around us are the most important people in our lives.

This includes their safety and well-being.

We have been monitoring feedback closely from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the city of Austin’s community leaders and internal teams to keep abreast of this situation.

We believe that, for the majority of people, the risk of exposure to the Corona Virus is very low.

In light of our decision, we are excited to announce that our show will go on.  Moreover, we are extending our show to allow artists who have been displaced by the unfortunate cancellation of the South by Southwest convention to share our stage and share their music to the world, while at the same time supporting and helping to sustain the local Austin community.

Our International Music Showcase at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard previously scheduled to begin at 3:00PM will now begin at 12:00PM.

We hope you will join us for what will be an incredible experience worthy of attendance!

$1 from each ticket sold will benefit Austin Free-Net, a 501c(3) non-profit which has been bridging the digital divide in Austin’s underserved communities for 25 years. AFN provides free digital literacy training and technological access in 18 classrooms and 5 public access computer labs across Austin.
