Thank you to everyone who came out to Cheer Up Charlies on Wednesday March 15th for our first Bonfire Sessions of 2017. We had a packed house that overflowed outside and into the streets. To say that Austin showed up early, waited in lines to enjoy food, beer, s’mores was an understatement. An incredible performances by headliner Lil Yachty, and supporting artists Noname, Tei Shi, Ian Sweet and No Win capped off another successful event for JanSport during SXSW.
Check out the full SXSW recap video highlighting the night’s performances here:
