LGBT Talent at SXSW Music The 2015 Music Festival will mark a special year in SXSW history as we will be presenting our very first showcase that specifically represents the LGBT community, hosted by The Color Agent, LLC. Although we have had openly gay and transgender musicians for many years, including the likes of Tegan and Sara, Big Freedia and Sharon Needles, this will be our first lineup that is fully comprised of LGBT acts. The show will be held on Saturday, March 21 at Cheer Up Charlie's (900 Red River St.), a venue that has long supported Austin's own LGBT community. The lineup features new Timbaland protege Jo'zzy, in addition to R&B singer Amanda Perez and dance pop trio AVAN LAVA, among others. Check out for the full lineup. 24 Beats Per Second Film Screenings open to Music Badges NEW FOR 2015: SXSW Music badgeholders will have access to all film screenings in the 24 Beats Per Second film festival category.
