Developing: Either Some Austinites Or Some Malaysians Are Going To Be Very Disappointed
DC9 at Night contributor Jeff Liles passed along this interesting note: Erykah Badu is scheduled to perform in Malaysia tonight--Saturday, March 21--opening up for Korn alongside N.E.R.D. Or so Dallas native and Korn keyboardist Zac Baird (formerly of Billygoat, Edie Brickell and Liles' own Cottonmouth, Texas) claims--while passing along the above visual evidence from the venue's marquis.
Trick is, she's also supposed to be in Austin tonight, performing alongside the Cannabinoids at the free SXSW performances at Auditorium Shores. Or so the schedule implies, showing that "The Cannabinoids feat. Erykah Badu" are set to perform at 7 p.m., right between sets from Beach House and Explosions in the Sky.
Either there's something I don't understand about the time difference between Austin and Malaysia (is it already Sunday over there?), or there's bound to be a crowd disappointed this evening. That or Erykah Badu's powers also include the ability to contort time and space, which is wholly believable at this point.
We've got a call into Badu's management team, so we'll let you know if we hear anything.
