Much to our delight, we found out last minute that Robert Delong was going to play the TechCrunch party at SXSW Interactive 2016 this year so we made sure we were there.

We actually were kinda worried because we didn’t know the exact time Robert Delong was going on-stage and once we rocked up to the venue, we didn’t see his name on any of the line-up info for the party. But hey, that’s SXSW for you – sometimes you have to take some risks to get the sweet sweet reward…

Our reward was pretty much a front-row seat to Robert Delong doing a close to full set of his amazing one-man-band and stage show. Literally, as we walked into the Palm Door on 6th Street, he was going onstage and there just happened be a space at the front in the crowded venue for us to enjoy.

We couldn’t quite believe it!

Last year, Robert Delong played the massive IFC Fairgrounds which was so rammed for us to truly enjoy the show, but this year, we couldn’t have asked for a better view! Robert said during the live show that he wasn’t going to do SXSW this year, but TechCrunch called him up last minute to perform for their Interactive party and so it happened.

Check out our footage of the show above. By far, this was one of our best experiences at SXSW this year so thank you to TechCrunch and Robert Delong for making this intimate show happen, days before the actual music festival began.
