Solange brought great energetic vibes to the FADER Fort stage at SXSW last week. What’s cool about Solange is that her music has this revamped for modern times 80’s pop and 90’s R&B inspired sound from her beats to lyrics (a little David Byrne sounding). And her attire, wearing a Pencey Spring 2013 suit jacket and dress pant (which was a collaboration with artist DJ Mia Moretti) was an ideal fit that paired well with the vibe of her music.
Here’s my personal favorite song of hers, “Losing You”. It’s the song that rebranded her into the indie industry – creating a more authentic place for herself and her music choice.
Plus, The FADER Fort always has a great stage and lighting and that adds to the concert experience. Their own lighting designer caught our compliment on Instagram! We’ll have our own original video of Solange (and more artists) from FADER Fort at SXSW — stay tuned!

TIBS ED. NOTE: We also got a shoutout from Solange herself! Jodeci was backstage and talked with her after the set. Solange shouted Jodeci and her friends on Twitter, showing love back to her fans. Gotta love her humble and giving spirit as well!
