SXSW Video: Little Boots and Kid Cudi – Day N Nite

by Winston "Stone" Ford

Both Little Boots and Cudi are two of my favorite artists in 2009, and they both are on the fast track for success this year. I was glad I actually got the chance to meet both in Austin last week. Of course, I’m not surprised that this spontaneous on-stage meeting happened at the Perez Hilton showcase. The reason I discovered Ms. Boots is from her cover of Cudi’s “Day N Nite,” which set had the Internets goin’ nuts. Boots, already popular in the UK is releasing her album real soon and Cudi got his wings from his mentor Kanye last week and will be dropping his album real soon. And by the way, Cudi is getting play from urban radio right now. The bloggers win again?

Reviews of both Little Boots and Kid Cudi performances to come later this week.
