LIFE AS SHAY’S SXSW 2014 Highlights: Top 5 things You Should Know

The Life As Shay Report:

As the weekend comes to a close, and all the lucky jerks that made it out to SXSW tread back home, I have a recap for those that stayed home and had to piece together the week from Instagram and Twitter.  Here are the Top 5 things you should know about the 2014 SXSW Conference.

1. There was a tragic accident involving a drunk driver that claimed the life of 2 and injured 23. A moment of silence was observed by the entire SXSW the following evening and the suspect has been taken into custody.

Ask Tyler the Creator, apparently he asked fans to bombard a venue after his show was canceled…they wasn’t having that.

3. Kelis is really about this FOOD life, she served ribs from a food truck down in Austin during the week.
