Although it may look like a home for leprechauns, this little green house in Austin, Texas was the music venue for Spotify all week long during South by Southwest. Spotify and MSN, with the help of Rolling Stone & Dig for Fire threw a week long party featuring performance sessions on the front porch with some of the biggest buzz artists at SXSW, including Of Monsters and Men, Kimbra, and Delta Spirit. They offered free food, drinks and a photo booth to commemorate the experience. Check out the Spotify Session with The Sheepdogs below.

All of the sessions were filmed by Rolling Stone and outside filming was prohibited, so we were delighted to score a 15 second Viddy Visual News (VVN) interview with Spotify’s Global Director of Events, Rachel Alvarado:
Jessica Czeck and I are taking Visual News on the road to connect with artists and musicians all over the country. We like to think of our van as a mini Spotify House. At SXSW, we opened the VVN Van to the energetic crowds on 6th Street, offering free tea, popcorn, and instant Polaroid pics. We have met with some amazingly talented and interesting people and will be uploading our 15 second Viddy interviews onto the soon to be launched Visual News Tumblr.
