Aleon Craft beamed down to join his fellow ATLiens at the “We Put the A in Austin” SXSW Fundraiser. On Friday night at Apache Cafe, Atlanta’s finest rocked the stage to raise funds to send an Atlanta music collective to Austin, TX for the SXSW Music Festival. “We Put the A in Austin” represents the full spectrum of Atlanta’s underground/indie music scene and will include a range of acts from Aleon Craft, Donnis, and Pill to Ocha La Rocha, The 54, and Brittany Bosco.
The A-Town love was apparent throughout the night as collaborations and guest appearances were frequent. Aleon Craft closed his set with “Donkey Kong“, joined by most of the artists there. He commanded the stage solo for most of the set backed by the spaced out funk production of SMKA. Along with Esperanza, Fadia Kader, Stadium Dan, and 4th Ward Heroes, SMKA is part of the team sending this collective to Austin.
