OY VEY SXSW is an event like no other. Beginning in 2012, the 7th annual SXSW event was born out of the rapper Kosha Dillz after being unable to land a "great show" in SXSW. He found himself on one trick pony hip hop shows that were never properly promoted or curated, even though he did everything he could to make successful. He brought in a venue called Lipstick 24 (now @empireatx) that enabled him to bring in all his own acts , and wanted to unite all the worlds that he operated in. Since then he went from an unofficial day party to 4th year official showcase. He has showcases acts from Murs and Gangsta Boo to Kool Keith, the Cool Kids and grammy nominated Raul Midon and klezmer accordion player Socalled.
Now in 2018, he has had acts from all over the globe come to play screaming OY. VEY! which is yiddish for OMG or WTF! Each show hopes to encourage cultural understanding from Israel to the American Jewish World to the DIY indie touring community; all places that Kosha finds himself rapping through. From indie rock and actors to rabbis and rappers, the event has managed to attain press in Billboard Magazine to HiphopDx and Brooklyn Vegan and Jerusalem Post. He really just wants everyone he hangs out with on different days of the week to be in the room at the same time. It aims to be the most diverse line up in all of Austin. OY VEY! Isn't that what we all want sometimes?
